  • Listening to sounds of drones and Assessing their noise
  • Noise impact on people and environment: Annoyance. Community acceptance. Privacy and security concerns related to ultra-silent machines
  • Airspace integration of drone operations and noise impact on urban or rural soundscapes: Mitigation by control of zones and routes, and around vertiports. Simulation of drone operations. Noise corridors
  • Emission and Immission of noise produced by UASs and UAVs and related regulations: sound power in hovering, fly-by noise, standardization, certification processes, databases, noise regulations in Europe and worldwide
  • Specific noise concerns with packages and goods deliveries by drones
  • Urban Air Mobility through autonomous air-taxis: State of development of vehicles, foreseen operations and constraints due to noise
  • Blades optimization: geometries, materials, serrations
  • Rotor/structure interaction /Shrouded propellers
  • Multirotors
  • Combined approaches, Auralization
  • Drone Audition / Acoustic localization using drones: Microphone Array embedded UAV / reducing ego-noise
  • Acoustic detection/ identification of drones: Supporting safety and security
