Mistra Urban Futures
Sendsmart is a project that will create sustainable
freight transports in urban areas. The innovative and sustainable
solutions will reduce the transports’ impact on climate, noise levels
and the health of those living in the city. The result is a more
attractive and competitive city. Sendsmart will run demonstrations
project in three key areas: Goods distribution, Building &
construction deliveries, and Waste management & Recycling. In
addition the project will work with evaluation, visualization and
marketing with a holistic approach to the three key areas.
The Division of Applied Acoustics are primarily active in the field
of Waste management & Recycling where we work close cooperation with
Volvo Technology, Volvo Trucks and Renova. We develop, test and
evaluate new and innovative solutions for a greener and more cost
efficient retrieval of waste. The goal is a validation of quiet and
advanced collection of residual waste in terms of living environment,
work environment and traffic. We are working to develop methods and
computational models for vehicle sounds that are validated against the
perceived noise disturbance for residents. Our result is the basis for
being able to change laws and regulations to allow for pick-up at times
with strict noise regulations.
The project is carried out at the Division of Applied Acoustics in the research group Vibroacoustics.
