Background & Inspiration


With „Nonoizu“, Eberspächer’s incubator Next Shed has developed a business model in the field of noise pollution: it is a system that leverages aggregated noise data to cartographical information in ordert o predict noise for urban communities and their citizens.

Our goal is to develop from

  • status quo data to real time measurement
  • point by point to comprehensive noise measurement
  • averages to exact forecasts
  • generate transparency, opportunities for participation and actual value for the citizens

Together with you, we want to explore approaches how to leverage existing noise data from urban infrastructure.


Stuttgart’s Marienplatz is a typical example of an urban space were several lanes of vehicle traffic meet the subway, were you find apartments as well as restaurants and shops.
