Sound Cameras to Help Reduce Noise Pollution

sound camerasDrivers with thumping stereos, loud exhausts or who may be too heavy on the horn — Be aware! You are now on target by an automated ticketing system. As reported by theNewspaper.com the technology developed for the Australian Navy system, is turned by a New South Wales Company into a ticketing system — a marriage of red-light cameras and noise sensors to target drivers.

It is via Wi-Fi that the system is tied together, and before the on-board hard drive runs out of space, it can hold a 10-second video and audio clip of 10,000 perpetrators. And these automated cameras that capture red light violations can be a major source of ticketing income for cities and the increasing noise violators.
