What is Qcity?
Qcity, a four-year research project co-funded by the European Commission, under the 6th Framework Programme has developed an integrated technology infrastructure for the efficient control of road and rail ambient noise by considering the attenuation of noise generation at source at both vehicle/infrastructure levels.
The activities support European noise policy to eliminate harmful effects of noise exposure and decrease levels of transport noise creation, especially in urban areas, deriving solutions that will ensure compliance with the constraints of legislative limits.
A major objective is to provide municipalities with tools to establish noise maps and action plans (Directive 2002/49/EC) and to provide them with a broad range of validated technical solutions for the specific hot-spot problems they encounter in their specific city.
