Characterizing acoustic noise barriers is a regulatory prerequisite for putting into operation any noise barrier, such as one next to a road, railway or industry. The requirements for characterizing noise barriers are set in international standards, which specify measurement and assessment protocols.

Along with our consortium we have created aSTAMIN (Automated Sound Transmission and Absorption Measurements In-Situ), a prototype solution that satisfies the measurement protocols while addressing some of the key burdens associated with using traditional technology. Our prototype consists of microphones fixed at nine corresponding locations with respect to each other, coupled to a centralized platform that performs simultaneous acoustic sound generation and recording, storing data on internal memory storage.

Our first prototype unit was already sold to a client in Slovenia, while the further development of this product has been funded by the Innovation Fund of the Republic of Serbia.
