Project ID: 14367
Funded under: FP5-GROWTH
Country: Italy

Monster prototype

This is the main result of the project, the complete prototype with all its characteristics (SW modules, HW structures and various SW management) that will be owned by the SMEs Consortium.

This is a low-cost system that will provide its users (airports, neighbouring communities, planners) a set of noise-related services, so to let them to better deal with the airport noise problem.

The Monster system is based on two main components: a software module and a hardware network of sensors; the combination of these two components will enable users to design and manage the network of noise sensors minimising their number.
The prototype has been already field-tested at end-users sites (Napoli: Capodichino Airport and Trieste: Ronchi dei Legionari Airport) according to the evaluation criteria and by taking into account the European standards.

This assessment reached the best lay-out of the Net of Sensors, optimised in the number and in the cost (class) maintaining the established accuracy of the system.
