SOUND, AS WE SEE IT
ABOUT THE COMPANY:
SenSound offers software, systems and services for noise source identification and noise related quality control testing.
Dr. Sean F. Wu, distinguished professor of mechanical engineering at Wayne State University’s College of Engineering, developed this tool to help quiet the noise that surrounds our daily lives. He says that seeing sound through science is the perfect solution to noise problems such as squeaky brakes, noisy dishwashers and more.
Dr. Wu and a team of Wayne State graduate students developed, patented and licensed a technology that allows users to actually see where unwanted sound originates and how it travels through space and time.
SenSound’s technology creates a 3-D image of sound in space and time that can pinpoint the exact source of noise in a large number of products with a high degree of resolution and accuracy. It will provide manufacturers of automobiles, airplanes, ships, consumer appliances and industrial machinery with an invaluable tool to quickly and accurately isolate and resolve problems of unwanted sound. It will also serve architectural firms that want to reduce the intrusions of external environmental noise or internally generated noise from HVAC equipment and other sources.
UNIVERSITY-BASED RESEARCH CONNECTION:
SenSound’s technology was initially developed in the College of Engineering at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan.
ROLE OF FEDERAL RESEARCH FUNDING:
Development of the SenSound technology was initially supported by grants from the National Science Foundation and was further supported by Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grants from the Department of Defense through the US Air Force and the National Science Foundation.
