Spain is trialling city monitoring using sound
There's more traffic on today's city streets than there ever has been, and managing it all can prove a headache for local authorities and transport bodies. In the past, we've seen the City of Calgary in Canada detect drivers' Bluetooth signals to develop a map of traffic congestion. Now the EAR-IT project in Santander, Spain, is using acoustic sensors to measure the sounds of city streets and determine real time activity on the ground.
