SOUND SOURCE LOCALISATION PERFORMANCE OF OPEN SPHERICAL ACOUSTIC INTENSITY PROBES UNDER REVERBERANT CONDITIONS

2014-04-25
Open-spherical acoustic intensity probes are microphone arrays based on the Kirchhoff-Helmholtz integral and are used in the measurement of active acoustic intensity. The acoustic intensity measurements obtained by these arrays can be used to localise sound sources. Previously, the performance of these arrays in acoustic free field conditions were obtained using numerical simulations and it was shown that they provide better performance than other types of probes. This paper discusses the implementation of open spherical microphone arrays and their performance in reverberant enclosures.

Theoretical Analysis of Open Spherical Microphone Arrays for Acoustic Intensity Measurements
Hacıhabiboğlu, Hüseyin (2014-02-01)
Acoustic intensity is a vectorial measure of acoustic energy flow through a given region of interest. Three-dimensional measurement of acoustic intensity requires special microphone array configurations. This paper provides a theoretical analysis of open spherical microphone arrays for the 3-D measurement of acoustic intensity. The calculations of the pressure and the particle velocity components of the sound field inside a closed volume are expressed using the Kirchhoff-Helmholtz integral equation. The con...
ACOUSTIC SOURCE SEPARATION USING THE SHORT-TIME QUATERNION FOURIER TRANSFORMS OF PARTICLE VELOCITY SIGNALS
Hacıhabiboğlu, Hüseyin (2016-03-25)
Quaternion Fourier transforms (QFT) provide a powerful tool for the analysis of signals obtained from vector probes. Acoustic particle velocity is one such signal which can be measured with specially designed microphone arrays. This paper presents a time-frequency source separation method based on the short-time quaternion Fourier transform of acoustic particle velocity signals and the k-plane clustering of the vector part of the resulting representation. Two example cases, one with a single and one with tw...
ACOUSTIC SOURCE SEPARATION USING RIGID SPHERICAL MICROPHONE ARRAYS VIA SPATIALLY WEIGHTED ORTHOGONAL MATCHING PURSUIT
Coteli, Mert Burkay; Hacıhabiboğlu, Hüseyin (2018-09-20)
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...
ON THE ACCURACY OF OPEN SPHERICAL MICROPHONE ARRAYS FOR MEASURING ACOUSTIC INTENSITY
Hacıhabiboğlu, Hüseyin (2013-10-23)
Acoustic intensity can be used for different purposes such as sound source localisation, source separation and spatial audio object coding. Three-dimensional measurement of the acoustic intensity requires the design of special microphone arrays. A theoretical analysis and numerical simulations of intensity measurements using open spherical microphone arrays are presented in this paper. The calculation of the acoustic intensity using signals from an open spherical microphone array is presented first. Error m...
Frequency tunable microstrip patch antenna using RF MEMS technology
Erdıl, Emre; Topallı, Kagan; Unlu, Mehmet; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Akın, Tayfun (2007-04-01)
A novel reconfigurable microstrip patch antenna is presented that is monolithically integrated with RF microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) capacitors for tuning the resonant frequency. Reconfigurability of the operating frequency of the microstrip patch antenna is achieved by loading it with a coplanar waveguide (CPW) stub on which variable MEMS capacitors are placed periodically. MEMS capacitors are implemented with surface micromachining technology, where a 1-mu m thick aluminum structural layer is plac...
