Increasing The Precision Of Noise Source Detection System using KNN Method

Parlin Nando, Aji Gautama Putrada, Maman Abdurohman


This paper proposes Accurate Noise Source Detection System using K-Nearest Neighbor (KNN) Method. Noise or sound intensity is usually measured in decibels (dB). In an educational environment the recommended noise index limit is 55 dB. It means that noise louder than that limit is prohibited. While a loud noise in a campus area occurred, it will be troublesome for the authorities to deal with the matter. This paper proposes a noise source detection system that can locate the position of the noise source. This system used Df analog V2 voice sensor for detecting the loud noise intensity. A microcontroller with WiFi capabilities will allow the system to communicate with an Internet of Things (IoT) platform that can perform a learning method to detect the location of the loud noise source. KNN method is used as the learning method. The result shows a user is able to get a warning related to the noise that occurs in an area at once. The precision position of the noise source can be detected with 70% average accuracy rate
