Drone noise: issues in the urban domain and noise reduction - Technical meeting AAS Victoria Division
Presenters: Simon Watkins and Abdulghani Mohamed, RMIT University
Online meeting via Zoom
Drones have been described as “the most disruptive technology in human history” and that “by the year 2030 there will be a billion drones in the world”, thus are one of the most rapidly developing aspects of aerospace science and technology. They are permeating our urban domain and the presence of an impending drone will normally be experienced acoustically, which may be perceived as annoying. However, if the noise is announcing the presence of a much-awaited delivery it may be associated with excitement (or for medical delivery, relief). Thus perception to drone noise is subjective and will be discussed in the presentation. Avenues for noise reduction will also be described including recent work on multi-rotor propeller noise by the staff and students of the RMIT Unmanned Aircraft Systems Group RUASRT.
Simon Watkins is a Professor of Engineering at RMIT and Abdulghani Mohamed is a senior lecturer. Both have been involved in drone research work and are key members of RUASRT.
The Zoom meeting details will be provided to registered participants prior to the meeting.
