Project Experience: Soundscape Builder™ for Transit Sound Demonstration, Florida

Florida DOT is planning development of a rail transit system for central Broward County. The public is concerned about the noise that will be produced by a "train" traveling on a rail line through their neighborhoods. HMMH produced a Soundscape Builder™ using binaural recordings made in their communities and binaural recordings made of various public transport systems in other communities. The Soundscape Builder™ was installed on HMMH's touch screen kiosk which was set up at a public workshop. All attendees were able to use headphones to compare the sound of the proposed transit system with other types of sounds and systems. They could choose the neighborhood, listen to local sounds, and then add the different sounds for comparison. Public appreciation of the presentation was exceptional.
