ABSTRACT
A new warning system for high tide in Venice has been designed
to replace the existing network of electro-mechanical sirens. The
project was divided into four sections: (i) optimal placement of
loudspeakers via constraint logic programming, (ii) simulation and
visualization of the acoustic field in the city, (iii) design of the
warning sounds, (iv) validation of the warning sounds. This paper
reports the strategies and results of all four project stages, with
special emphasis on sound design and validation.
