A Pilot Study on Aircraft Noise and Sleep Disturbance

The researchers on A Pilot Study on Aircraft Noise and Sleep Disturbance project plan to develop recommendations on the methodology for a multi-airport study examining the effects of aircraft noise on sleep. The researchers have developed an automatic algorithm that identifies awakenings based on both increases in movement and heart rate. They are working to identify a methodology for automatically detecting aircraft noise events in recorded sound files.
