ABSTRACT

Traffic noise is the most frequently occurring type of noise that is encountered by all. Its
effects on humans, we can find mainly in annoyance and other nonspecific effects.
These effects depend on gender, age, momentary disposition and other factors. The
article deals with psychoacoustic noise analysis of the specific vehicles and its
subjective evaluation. Similar analyzes are the basis for further development of the cars
in their acoustic parameters.

Keywords: traffic noise, psychoacoustics, psychoacoustic analysis
