Article
Full-text available
Large scale transportation projects can adversely affect the visual perception of environmental quality and require adequate visual impact assessment. In this study, we investigated the effects of the characteristics of the road project and the character of the existing landscape on the perceived visual impact of motorways, and developed a GIS-base...
Article
Using virtual reality (VR) for environmental evaluation is one of the innovations in planning process to support the involvement of local population in decision making. The power of VR in public participation is further enhanced by its application online. However, current online VR applications for public participation is mostly restricted as visua...
Chapter
Full-text available
Visualisation and auralisation are among the essential technologies for perception-driven decision support in landscape planning and soundscape planning, respectively. By making proposed developments and environmental changes visible and audible, they allow decision-makings based on perceptual experience, providing a “common language” that all the...
Article
Sound, together with other sensory impressions, contributes to the perceived quality of the global environment, and influences human experience of the place. This study investigates how shared-street design and traffic restriction, two widely used street management measures in urban areas, influence urban soundscape and human experience of the plac...
Article
Transport noise is the dominant noise source in urban areas. Its impacts on people at their residential locations are included in economic appraisal in the UK and many other countries, and guidance and analysis tools were developed for the valuation of the impacts. However, for transport noise impacts on people in public urban spaces, e.g., urban s...
Article
Full-text available
The past two decades have seen an ongoing paradigm shift from noise control to soundscaping, and soundscape approaches have been applied in noise management projects. However, cost-benefit analysis (CBA), which is widely used for economic appraisal of projects that would impact on the sound environment, remains noise-based and residential-location-...
Article
Electric bikes (e-bikes) represent an increasing share of urban mobility due to their small sizes and clean fuels. This study developed an environmental life cycle assessment model to evaluate e-bikes powered by lithium-ion battery, compared with a petrol car and a battery electric vehicle (BEV) for commuting. System boundary included vehicle lifec...
Article
Job accessibility and environmental quality are rarely equally distributed in spatial and/or social dimensions within metropolitan regions. Availability of these affects the quality of residential locations, and can be expected to be capitalised into house prices. For prospective house owners, their options will be limited to sub housing markets wi...
Article
Full-text available
Examination of users' preferences and needs can provide an additional and strong basis for decision making, which is applicable in the case of urban street renewal. In this study, a choice experiment on street renewal plans in Shanghai was conducted using an online survey (N = 546), and people's willingness to pay (WTP) for a set of street attribut...
Conference Paper
Transport noise is the dominant noise source in urban areas. In the UK, its impacts on people at their residential locations are included in project Business Cases, and guidance and analysis tools were developed for valuing the impacts through an impact pathway approach. However, for transport noise impacts on people in public urban spaces, e.g., u...
Conference Paper
Public services and resources such as job accessibility and environmental quality are often not equally distributed in spatial and/or social dimensions within metropolitan regions. Availabilities of these public services and resources affect the quality of residential locations, and can be expected to be capitalised into house prices. For prospecti...
Chapter
The Inner Ring Road of Sheffield was first proposed in the 1930s and mainly constructed in late 20th century. While trying to serve effectively as traffic arteries, the ring road, which has required massive demolition, is somewhat physically arbitrary, appearing like a huge scar on the existing urban fabric. This chapter investigates the Inner Ring...
Article
Motorways are often seen as intrusive to both landscape and soundscape, and recent studies on multisensory perception suggest that an integrated assessment of the environmental impacts is necessary. This paper investigates the effects of traffic condition, distance to road and background landscape on the perceived integrated impact of noise and vis...
Article
This study investigated the effect of odour on multisensory environmental evaluations of road traffic. The study aimed to answer: (1) Does odour have any effect on evaluations on noise, landscape and the overall environment? (2) How different are participants' responses to odour stimuli and are these differences influential on the evaluations? Expe...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper presents the work of SONORUS-ESR6 project: New methodologies for the noise annoyance assessment of urban projects. The project aims to develop new ecological assessment of sound environment that takes into account the multisensory and interdependent nature of human perception through the application of immersive virtual reality (IVR), an...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Effective involvement of the public in local governance and decision-making via e-participation is one of the key characteristics of smart cities. Use of Virtual Reality (VR) for multisensory environmental evaluation is one of the innovations in planning process to support the involvement of local population in shaping their living environment. It...
Article
Visual impact is one of the major environmental impacts of motorways and requires adequate assessment. This study investigated the effect of traffic noise on the perceived visual impact of motorway traffic by comparing impact with sound to impact without sound. Computer visualisation and edited audio recordings were used to simulate different traff...
Article
Full-text available
This study investigated the overall performance of noise barriers in mitigating environmental impact of motorways, taking into consideration their effects on reducing noise and visual intrusions of moving traffic, but also potentially inducing visual impact themselves. A laboratory experiment was carried out, using computer-visualised video scenes...

Project
The project aims to study the moderating factors of the sound perception with particular attention on the influence of the multisensory, physiological, psychological and social aspects. The Immersive Virtual Reality is the main tool used for the simulation of Virtual Environments where laboratory experiments are carried out.
Project
Based on SONORUS (Urban Sound Planner)-ESR6 project, a web-based online virtual reality tool for multisensory evaluation of urban sound environment was developed. We would like to invite you to try it and give us feedback. The test will take around 15 minutes. You will need a pair of headphones or earphones for this test, and it would be better to do the test in a relatively quiet place. If you are interested, you can click the links below to start the test. There are two versions available: Higher-quality version (recommended): http://www.previewlabs.com/soundnaples/webbuild/SoundNaples.html Tips: • You should open the link and do the test on a computer rather than a smart phone or a tablet. • This version is currently not supported by Chrome, other popular browsers (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera) should work. • If you don’t usually play web games, you may be asked to install a small plug-in called Unity Web Player (size: 12 MB) upon clicking the link. You can always remove the plug-in afterwards in the way you uninstall normal applications (e.g., in Control Panel for Windows). • Depending on the speed of your internet connection, it may take a few seconds or a few minutes to load the page (usually less than 1 minute). • Depending on the size of your screen, you may need to scroll up and down the web page a bit to see all the displayed information. So if you feel you miss something during the test, for example, not receiving instruction of next task, make sure you scroll up or down to reach the top or bottom of the page.

Urban sound planning is often insufficiently considered in urban planning, resulting in unsatisfactory urban sonic environments. It is widely accepted that the acoustic comfort within the cities should aim for more than just preventing and controlling excess noise exposure. It should instead support the wellbeing and health of residents. SONORUS – the urban sound planner project, a European Integrated Training Network (ITN), is trying to overcome this restriction by developing a new, holistic approach.
