Controllable Urban Soundscape (2:37) Noise pollution is one of the most stressful things for the urban citizen. Long term exposure to noise from road, rail, and air traffic results in physiological and psychological stress, which indirectly may contribute to heart disease, and high blood pressure.
The vision of the TOR-project is to create oases of tranquillity in public spaces as a natural part of the city centre. Disruptive noise pollution from traffic, for instance, is silenced using advanced technology, providing a relaxing and peaceful space. IMCG is leading the project during the period 2014-2016, and is responsible for the development of innovation and new business solutions.
