New automated system for the measurement of noise emissions in motocross tracks by MYLAPS

aboutuem
FIM Europe is glad to present a new product from one of its official sponsors: MYLAPS Noise Management is a fully automated system for motocross tracks that continuously measures the noise emission. It stores all data and makes it directly accessible. The system works with MYLAPS MX Timing System and MYLAPS MX transponders, so each individual rider can be held responsible for the sound produced by their bike. For many motocross tracks and clubs it is becoming increasingly difficult to meet noise regulations. Regulations become stricter and local authorities enforce these regulations more often. This causes many tracks to be threatened with closure or other restrictive measures. The MYLAPS Noise Management System allows tracks to measure and monitor all noise rules. The settings of Noise Management can be adjusted to the local regulations and policies. Martijn Spliethof, secretary BMAC Borculo Motocross, the Netherlands: “BMAC Borculo uses the Noise Management system
