Exterior Auralization of Traffic Noise within the LISTEN project
Paper i proceeding, 2011
In the present paper, computational auralizations of a single pass-by of a passenger car and passenger train are investigated. Auralization of future traffic noise scenarios would be a valuable tool for city planners, noise consultants and decision makers, since it would make it possible to evaluate various noise mitigation solutions already at the planning stage. The main goal of the Swedish multidisciplinary research project LISTEN has been to develop such a tool. This paper reports recent listening experiments conducted to perceptually evaluate the auralizations and subsequent improvements on computational methodologies regarding road and rail traffic noise and passenger train source models.
