Introduction and Project Summary

Sonicam is a tool to visualize sound. It’s like a thermal camera, but for sound. It uses an array of microphones to capture and process sound to display a heatmap of sources of noises. Humans are much better at perceiving direction using their eyes instead of sound, so we hope Sonicam would help people identify and pinpoint noises quickly. One use case for this is in detecting gas leaks. Because gas leaks have a specific hiss that can be hard to pinpoint the direction by ear, Sonicam could help quickly locate the source of the leak.
