Passenger's Train Soundscape: Identification of Activities
* Presenting author
Passenger’s train is an environment where people are exposed by mechanical sound and the sound of human activity. The passengers need to be in the same acoustic environment for a period of time, so a comfortable environment is a necessity. Soundscape intervention can be applied in this case with the consideration of passenger’s activity. This study tries to identify the activities in a passenger’s train with 9 hours (07.20-16.20) journey. There are several activities identified in the train: sleeping, eating, going to the toilet, and using mobile phone. In general, when the passengers are not sleeping, they are using mobile phone. The passenger tends to sleep during three periods of time. The eating activity happens once after the first sleeping period. The passenger’s going to the toilet twice during the journey. First, after two hours of journey and after 5 hours of journey. The study has identified the passenger’s activity during nine hours train journey. The result of this study can be beneficial to design acoustic environment scenario which considers different activity.
