The partnership of TU/ecomotive with Sorama adds a new dimension to Zero Emission Mobility: the reduction of noise emissions. Millions of people experience pollution of noise from transportation, which is a serious threat to our well-being. We believe that sustainability is not only about greenhouse gas emissions or sustainable production methods, but also about healthy and liveable surroundings. Therefore, we want to improve the so called ‘sound design’ of Zem by utilizing the Sorama Acoustic Design Cycle.
Sorama will join us on our tour to the USA. During this time, they will show us how to use the Sorama CAM iV64 ourselves, in order to do measurements, so our engineers can reduce Zem’s noise. By localizing unwanted noise and making Zem sound better, we can inspire other car manufacturers to take care of reduction of noise emission of their cars too.
Additionally, we also want to make local governments aware of the effect of traffic noise. By monitoring traffic, they can discover the biggest sources of noise pollution and solve the issue. One of the most popular solutions for this, is the Sorama Noise Camera. The device can detect, identify and locate (too) loud vehicles, so the local governments can take targeted action.
Together with Sorama, we will work towards a world that sounds better and is more liveable, starting with our own Zem.
