In order to make a seamless connection between the auditory and the visual, the SOUNDCAM is the product by the researchers. This product has been designed as an affordable acoustic camera by the makers. The website of the company wrote about the concept behind the product that the sound propagates as a wave at a certain speed.
It means a certain amount of time is required by the sound in order to propagate from the noise source to each microphone of the array. The sound wave will need varying travel times depending on each microphone’s positions.
The algorithms which are running on the SOUNDCAM are responsible for analyzing these time delays as well as calculating accurate acoustic pictures and videos in the real time.
This camera works by combining 64 separate microphones, a traditional optical camera as well as an integrated data analysis system. By using the data from the mics, the system can figure out exactly the location of the sound in the frame and then it overlays the high resolution results in the real time on the live view from the optical camera.
There are numerous use cases for this technology as it can help in tracking down and analyze all kinds of the noise from the all kinds of courses in all kinds of environment.
