8-11 September 2024 - University of Salford/Hotel INNSiDE Manchester
QuietDrones is a symposium focused on all aspects of noise and acoustics from Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS, also known as 'drones') and VTOLs (i.e., 'flying taxis').
Quiet Drones is for Industry representatives, public authorities, regulators, consultants, and academics working on noise control and acoustics with a focus on Advanced Air Mobility, as well as UAS users. An international audience is expected, with expertise covering topics such as aeroacoustics, psychoacoustics, signal processing, noise control, auralisation and acoustic predictions and standards and regulation.
QuietDrones 2024 will present methods under development for establishing measurement standards on noise from UAS and VTOLs, as well as new metrics to characterise the impact of their noise on people and environment. It will explain about recent advances in the study of noise generation and control at its source as well as propogation in different flying conditions and environments. It eill also present acoustic tools for the detection and identification of drones as well as drone audition methods for search and rescue. And it will discuss public acceptance of the noise of delivery UAS as well as of air taxis in European cities and the rest of the world.
QuietDrones 2024 will provide a venue for researchers on drone noise to meet with manufacturers, users and those engaged in designing innovative applications for this new technology. Further information can be found on the following website
