Abstract:

THE AUDIO MECHANICAL TRANSDUCER (AMT) COMMUNICATION SYSTEM WILL SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVE THE ENVIRONMENT OF WORKERS IN HIGH-AMBIENT-NOISE CONDITIONS BY PROVIDING A NEW METHOD OF COMMUNICATING. THE SYSTEM WILL ATTACH DIRECTLY TO MOST FORMS OF HEARING PROTECTION WITHOUT MODIFICATION OF THE PROTECTOR. IT WILL BE LOW COST, PERMIT MULTIPLE AUDIO INPUTS, AND DEMONSTRATE MAN/MACHINE INTERFACE CAPABILITIES. THE SYSTEM WILL HAVE BENEFITS TO BOTH MANAGEMENT AND WORKERS. THERE ARE APPROXIMATELY 2.9 MILLION INDIVIDUALS IN THE UNITED STATES WORKING IN A HIGH-NOISE ENVIRONMENT. LACK OF COMMUNICATION CAN CAUSE FEELINGS OF ISOLATION AND REDUCE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF HEARING PROTECTION PROGRAMS. THE INABILITY TO HEAR WARNING SIGNALS CLEARLY HAS LED TO INJURIES AND DEATHS. THE MAJORITY OF WORKERS IN HIGH-NOISE ENVIRONMENTS DO NOT BENEFIT FROM EXISTING COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS. THE AMT COMMUNICATION SYSTEM ADDRESSES EACH OF THESE AREAS. HEARING PROTECTION PROGRAMS HAVE TRADITIONALLY BEEN BASED ONTHE ADMONITION, "WEAR HEARING PROTECTION OR YOU WILL GO DEAF." THE AMT COMMUNICATION SYSTEM WILL PRESENT AN ALTERNATIVE: "WEAR HEARING PROTECTION AND ENHANCE YOUR WORK ENVIRONMENT."
