‘Semaine du Son’
An environment that is too noisy can be a source of stress for students.Tohu-Bahuthas set itself the goal of raising awareness among secondary school and sixth-form students with regard to noise pollution. This mobile application enables students to measure noise in the different areas of their school.Tohu-Bahut will be tested for the first time at the Semaine du Son (Week of Sound). This project, which originated during a hackathon, has been implemented thanks to the partnership between Réseau Canopé, Inria, the start-up Ambiciti and with the support of the GMF.
