Josie Hughes publishes the results from her Mini Project on noise monitors connected via a Bluetooth Low Energy network in the International Journal on Smart Sensing and Intelligent Systems

Josephine Hughes, an MRes student in the first cohort of the Sensor CDT has just published the results from her 8 week Mini Project entitled "Development of wireless sensor network using Bluetooth Low Energy for construction noise monitoring" in the International Journal on Smart Sensing and Intelligent Systems.

The paper focuses on noise detection and monitoring around the construction site of the London Bridge Station redevelopment and compares the performance and cost of different network technologies. The Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) network was capable of identifying and locating vehicle noise around the construction site. The low cost of the system would allow to deploy a large number of sensor nodes around a construction site to monitor noise with great spatial resolution. Other types of sensors, e.g. temperature and humidity could be easily added to the network.

Josie has an Engineering degree from Cambridge University, where she specialised in Electrical and Information Engineering and gained particular experience in low cost open access technology during her final year project.
