ARTICLE

ABSTRACT

In this paper the development of a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) for construction noise identification and sound locating is investigated using the novel application of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). Three WSNs using different system-on-chip (SoC) devices and networking protocols have been prototyped using a Raspberry Pi as the gateway in the network. The functionality of the system has been demonstrated with data logging experiments and comparisons has been made between the different WSN systems developed to identify the relative advantages of BLE. Experiments using the WSN for vehicle noise identification and sound location have further demonstrated the potential of the system. This paper demonstrates the versatility of a BLE WSNs and the low power consumption that is achievable with BLE devices for noise detection applications.
