Converted Wall / noise barrier

Converted Wall
Converted Wall

Noise isolation belt are very common on the highway or near the overpass. The function of the noise barrier is to separate noise and reduce the noise nuisance for people live around noise sources. Since the noise itself is a huge potential of energy, we hope to reverse the process that vibrations change into electrical signals, so that noise energies can be converted into electrical energy. And the huge energies can supply the urban public facilities or people live around noise sources. Such way of energy absorption and transformation is more sustainable than simply prevent the energy dissipating in the air.
