“No, no, it is not about taxis,” according to Rick Scholte, founder of Sorama B.V. in Eindhoven, “yet a new, revolutionary sound camera: the Sorama CAM64.” It contains 64 microphones, instead of the single-microphone of the traditional sound level meter.

The first results of the tests in November 2015 at Stratumseind in Eindhoven are published by the City of Eindhoven (see https://www.facebook.com/LivingLabStratumseind/). The goal is to detect anomalies like aggression in an early stage in order for the police and/or the lighting system to act and prevent worse from happening.
Sorama and the Technical University of Eindhoven are presenting two papers on acoustic imaging and microphone arrays at Euronoise 2015.
