This work is part of the research project “Sons al Balcó” conducted by La Salle - Universitat Ramon Llull, which examines the impacts of noise pollution on human perception and mental health, specifically focusing on the perception of noise in Catalonia during the lockdown in 2020 and the return to normalcy in 2021. The purpose of this research is to identify patterns between the soundscape and the visual landscape of participants’ environments. To achieve this, we have developed a pipeline to automatically analyse the visual landscape of participants’ environments by semantically segmenting the keyframes of their videos using deep neural networks. Specifically, we use the SegFormer model, a Transformer-based framework for semantic segmentation that integrates Transformers with lightweight MLP decoders. This pipeline facilitates the efficient and accurate identification of different objects, to understand the complex relationships among the acoustic environment, visual landscape, and human perception. We expect that our findings will offer insights into the design of urban and suburban areas that promote well-being and quality of life.
