Acoustic wave sensors are the electronic devices used to measure sound levels. When an acoustic wave travels through a material or along the surface of the material, it is affected by the different properties of the material it travels through and hindrances in the path. Any changes in the characteristics of this traveling path affect the velocity and amplitude of the wave. These changes can be recorded by measuring the phase characteristics or frequency of the waves. Acoustic wave sensors are comparatively cheap, reliable, rugged, and very sensitive, and can be used wirelessly and passively (without a power source)."
