AI Noise Analyzer @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi
In order to combat noise pollution, this project uses Raspberry Pi 4 to analyze sounds. Deployed in a fleet, these devices could monitor the diverse sounds in a city, an a broad effort to reduce noise pollution. Here’s more from Alan Boris via hackster.io:
We’re using a Coral Dev Board or a Raspberry Pi 4 with an attached Edge TPU to listen to ambient sounds 24/7 and categorize them for us. We’ll also demonstrate how we could deploy a fleet of these devices (e.g. across an entire city) and feed new information back to all the devices to make them “smarter.”
To help reduce noise pollution, we first need to know which noises are most prevalent and how often they occur. Is it dogs barking at night or loud machinery during the day? How often does it actually occur? Is it worse in one part of town or another? The use case is not limited to noise pollution. We can train our sound categorization model to recognize almost any audio we want, assuming we have enough samples of the target sound.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
