Please provide a short description of the state-of-the-art and/or current trends in the field? How does the result fit into it?
Analysis of environmental noise is an important field of environmental protection and acoustics. Real-time monitoring of environmental noise is an available technology and a practice in environmental acoustics, just as the modeling of noise prediction and mapping of noise immission in an area. The European Union has started a program named Environmental Noise Directive in 2002, to produce noise maps in all major cities and around major road, railway, airport and industrial noise sources.

What is the problem/need/knowledge gap that the research result is responding to?  How was it addressed before?
This research aims to combine the benefits of real-time noise monitoring and noise mapping in order to produce real-time noise maps, which is a new informative and illustrative way of environmental noise analysis. The solution of this problem necessitated the research of source-selective noise monitoring and the periodic refreshment of noise map using monitoring data.

 

3

What is the potential for further research?
Both technical problems open a very wide area of research and development, which will give much opportunity of further work, after the first systems are operating. The source-selective noise monitoring has to be applied for several situations that creates new challenges each time. The software development for procession and human interface will also require continuous development.

 

 

4

What is the proposed method of IPR-protection? (patent, license, trademark etc.)
Hungarian patent application and PCT application.

 

5

What are the steps that need to be taken in order to secure the IPR-protection? What is the cost of IPR-protection?
The innovation is ready to be IPR-protected.

The proposed costs of the first level of IPR-protection:

- Patent application, Hungary: 500 000 HUF

- PCT I and II. phases: 2 300 000 HUF

The national and USA procedures are depending on the market demand.
