Ever since the Tree Planting Campaign launched in 1963 , Singapore aimed to promote itself as a green city. This goal was not only achieved but further grown to make Singapore the city in the Garden. With plenty of greenery filling up Singapore, it would be expected that citizens will be able to fully enjoy these spaces developed by the government. Unfortunately, this may not be the case as a result of urbanisation. Nowadays, modern transportations are no longer a rare sight. In fact, they are so prominent that honking and tire screeching noises produced by the vehicles can be heard even when they are not within sight. These noises are what attributed to the increasing noise pollution in urban areas. Not only does noise pollution disrupt the peaceful and relaxing environment, it also causes damages to the human’s health, resulting in distress . Hence this project hopes to minimise or even remove any unwanted noise heard by the park users by implementing artificial soundscape playback system with auto volume adjustment based on the analysis of the environmental noise. The project will be developed using National Instruments LabVIEW software together with the myRIO device. 3D printing technology will also be used to create a casing to house all hardware components.
