NASA drone sound

Surely it is not the first time you have heard that a certain drone produces a rather annoying sound, according to the latest study published by no less NASA It is ensured that the sound produced by this type of unmanned vehicle is the most annoying compared to the sound produced by any other vehicle on the planet as long as both are at the same volume.

Going into a little more detail, apparently and to carry out this work, NASA researchers decided to carry out the test using several different drones available today in the market and 38 people who they had to rate the sound produced by the devices on a scale that ranged from not at all annoying to extremely annoying.

NASA publishes the results of a study where the sound produced by drones is described as very annoying

Apparently and among the theories that show that this sound is much more annoying, at equal volume, than that produced by any other vehicle, it lies in the speed of the drones, that is, because they move much slower than For example, a car makes people have to endure sound for a longer time.

On the other hand, as specified by one of those responsible for this work, it is also true that as people who live in cities we are much more used to the noise of cars since we hear them daily while the vast majority of people who conducted the study had never heard of a fully functioning drone.

Be that as it may, the truth is that perhaps sooner than we imagine, we will have to learn to live with this type of sounds since so many private companies are working on making them completely autonomous so as not to depend on humans when delivering their packages while, As a public entity, many are the governments and institutions that are already working on the legislation that allows its regulated use.
