Sound pollution is becoming an increasingly pressing issue in today’s world. To effectively address it, it must be measured. To this end, Serval was developed, an edge-ai powered sound recognition solution. Its lack of accuracy, however, makes it difficult to deploy. This thesis examines the potential for improving this solution while staying...

Product sounds are important in our interactions with them. The temporal and context-dependent nature of sound makes it difficult to design them. There is a semantic gap between how we talk about sound and how it is embodied. Sound-driven design aims to improve this in two ways. It proposes a human-centered design approach, focusing on designing...

In conditionally automated driving (SAE level 3), drivers may take their eyes off the road but will still need to be ready to take control and will, therefore, benefit from information on automation. This study aims to investigate the effectiveness of automation manoeuvre information provided through spatial sound, traditional notification sound...

The recent research aims to investigate the petrophysical and hydrogeological parameters of the Nubian aquifer system (NAS) in Northern Khartoum State, Sudan, using integrated geophysical methods, including surface electrical resistivity and geophysical well-logging. The Nubian aquifer is a transboundary regional aquifer that covers vast areas...

This paper elucidates the link between the near-wake development of a circular cylinder coated with a porous material in a low Mach-number flow and the related aerodynamic sound attenuation. It accomplishes this by formulating the cylinder flow-induced noise as a diffraction problem. The necessity for such an approach is driven by...

This graduation thesis is on the topic of Critical audible alarm-sound design for handheld monitoring devices in Neonatal ICUs. Hand-held mobile devices are being tested in the field for effective alarm perception and response in the NICU at Erasmus MC Sophia's Hospital, Rotterdam. Based on the context analysis, the major stakeholder, and the...

Introduction<br/>Reverberation causes a reduced speech perception in cochlear implant (CI) users. Therefore, a dereverberation method was proposed based on the weighted prediction error (WPE) algorithm with input from a deep neural network. The speech intelligibility for normal and hearing-aided listeners is improved by cancelling the late...

Bird observation, as one of the most popular nature exploration activities in Europe, has a large user group, a profitable market and contributes positively to the environment. Optical devices are almost a necessity for bird observation since they provide a magnified view with vivid details at a far distance. <br/>Leica, a premium product...

Although the roles of visual and haptic cues in motor tasks have been well studied, the benefits of audio cues in complex motor tasks have been underexplored. Audiovisual cues reduce reaction times and decrease the variance of endpoint responses in simple head-orienting localization tasks. The aim of this research is to explore the potential of...

This research project delves into the exploration of the sound environment within Intensive Care Units (ICUs), particularly focusing on Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). It aims to enhance the understanding of sound events and their impact on both nurses' decision-making and patients' sleep behaviors....

Orthopedic surgeries are identified as one of the most noisy surgeries inside the OR (operation room). The highest noise sound level could reach up to around 130 dB, which is harmful to patients’ well-being and are likely to evoke negative feelings during surgery. In the previous study investigating the emotional experience of patients who...

Sound in UX design can be used in a variety of ways; to navigate the interaction, for branding, to set the ambience etc. The importance of sound for the user experience of a product is undeniable; however, this is not represented in the practices of UX designers. UX designers lack the tools and knowledge needed to integrate sound design into...

This study explored several anticipatory interfaces as motion sickness mitigation tool in autonomously driving vehicles. The interfaces were designed to lower the mismatch between the expected motion and the sensory input in a moving body, by providing anticipatory information on upcoming vehicle motion. The two proposed interfaces were a Light...

One of the biggest challenges of the century is the fight against global warming. In all sectors people are doing their best to reduce their carbon footprints and their impact on the environment. In the energy sector this is done by making use of renewable energy sources (RES), such as wind turbines, instead of fossil fuels. This transition to...

In this paper, we present a study to improve using neural networks for acoustic reflection localization. Our study focuses on the reimplementation of the proposed neural network model by Bologni et al. and investigates the effect of adding a third microphone to the microphone array. We reimplemented and trained the neural network using the same...

This project proposes and evaluates a novel concept for an airspeed instrument aimed at small hybrid unmanned aerial vehicles. The working principle is to relate the power spectra of the wall-pressure fluctuations beneath the turbulent boundary layer formed over the vehicle’s body to its airspeed. The instrument consists of two microphones,...

The built environment contributes in a large extend to the global greenhouse gas emissions. With a growing demand for new buildings another view on building products is required. This thesis focusses on creating a biobased sound absorbing panel made from a mycelium bound biomaterial derived from urban waste. The production method for this panel...

Isentropic processes in thermodynamics are fundamental to our understanding of numerous physical phenomena across different scientific and engineering fields. They provide a theoretical reference case for the evaluation of real thermodynamic processes and observations. Yet, as analytical relations for isentropic transformations in gas dynamics...

This study presents the analogical assessment of the train-induced vibration and radiated noise in a proposed theater. The theater is to be constructed in a region with crowded metro lines, and the assessment is implemented in an analogical building with comparable structural type and metro condition. Prior to the assessment, the comparability...
