Technological advancements in microelectronics and continuing research into signal characterisation and classification techniques have lead to promising results in developing an advanced sound meter. This instrument would be capable of characterising a sound field in terms of the relative contributions of the different noise sources. This paper provides an overview of this collaborative project, due for completion in October 2009, and the milestones
that have been reached. In particular, the consideration and implementation of sensors and systems, the signal processing algorithms of source identification and classification, and the potential uses of the instrument in specific noise assessments in the UK are discussed.
