Sound field analysis using a compact pressure gradient array

The characteristics of a sound field at a location are determined by the arrival directions of the direct sound and the reflections, their amplitudes and time delays, which constitute the directional room responses (DRRs). While the sound field in a room can be modelled with a variety of acoustical modelling methods, there are relatively few recording-based analysis techniques. This paper proposes a two-step sound field analysis method using recordings of a compact stationary pressure-gradient array which is steerable at various directions by post processing. As the first step, the direction of the sound source is estimated exploiting the time-frequency variations in a signal. As the next step, approximate DRRs are calculated by deconvolution, which contain all the spatio-temporal characteristics of a sound field useful in spatialization and auralization.

In this thesis, principles of a pulse modulated frequency modulated continuous wave radar is analyzed and adding time delay to transmitted signal in the laboratory environment performed. The transmitted signal from the radar has a time delay for traveling the distance between radar and target. The distance from radar to target is more than one kilometers thus test of the functionality of the radar in the laboratory environment is unavailable. The delay is simulated regarding to elapsed time for the transmit...

Acoustic source separation refers to the extraction of individual source signals from microphone array recordings of multiple sources made in multipath environments such as rooms. The most straightforward approach to acoustic source separation involves spatial filtering via beamforming. While beamforming works well for a few sources and under low reverberation, its performance diminishes for a high number of sources and/or high reverberation. An informed acoustic source separation method based on the applic...
Multichannel Audio Coding Based on Analysis by Synthesis

Spatial hearing enables translation of an auditory scene into a perceived 3-D image by interpreting the acoustic cues related to the sounding objects, their locations, and the physical characteristics of the space. Spatial audio production requires multichannel audio signals in order to convey this information and increase the realism of a real or virtual environment for applications such as the home entertainment, virtual reality, and remote collaboration. As demand to spatial audio continues to expand, ef...
Acceleration of line of sight analysis algorithms with parallel programming
Yılmaz, Gökhan; Sürer, Elif; Temizel, Alptekin (null; 2017-11-23)
Line of sight (LOS) analysis is a set of methods and algorithms to determine the visible points in a terrain with reference to a specific observer point. This analysis is used in simulations, Geographic Information System (GIS) applications and games. For this reason, it is important to have a capability to get results quickly and facilitate analysis in such a way that the interaction with the changing reference points is possible. Van Kreveld, R2 and R3 are the most frequently used algorithms in line of si...

Feedback control systems, of which control loops are closed over a real-time communication network, are called Networked Control Systems (NCSs). In this study the message scheduling problem for NCSs with time slotted communication protocols is tackled First, an algorithmic approach is presented to check the necessary and sufficient conditions for a given message schedule such that the real-time requirements of the system are satisfied Second, starting from an initial schedule, Simulated Annealing is used to...
