Detecting nearby vehicles involves utilizing data from various sensors installed on a car as it moves. Common sensors for identifying nearby vehicles include LiDAR, cameras, and RADAR. However, all of these sensors suffer from the same issue -- they cannot detect an approaching vehicle that is not yet visible. Hence, this thesis explores the...

Estimation of the acoustic-scene related parameters such as relative transfer functions (RTFs) from source to microphones, source power spectral densities (PSDs) and PSDs of the late reverberation is essential and also challenging. Existing maximum likelihood estimators typically consider only subsets of these parameters and use each time frame...

Estimating the parameters that describe the acoustic scene is very important for many microphone array applications. For example, consider the power spectral densities (PSDs) or relative acoustic transfer functions (RTFs) that are required when estimating a particular sound source using multi-microphone noise reduction. State-of-the-art...

Nowadays, large wind turbines are installed and operated close to densely populated areas due to the growing need for renewable energy. Noise constraints are hampering this development. The most relevant wind turbine noise source is the so-called Turbulent Boundary Layer Trailing-Edge (TBL–TE) noise. Many passive TBL–TE noise reduction...

The contribution of the engine and the airframe to the total noise generated by an aircraft varies with the operating conditions. Semi-empirical models are able to account for such variations but require detailed engine and airframe data as input that is not readily available for most aircraft types and operations. This hinders the validation of...

Full-scale propeller measurements are useful to study the total noise contribution of a propeller-driven aircraft, including installation effects. Full-scale measurements under operational conditions also provide an accurate validation opportunity for propeller noise prediction models. These studies are, therefore, necessary to quantify and...

Complex acoustic systems typically present three-dimensional distributions of noise sources. Conventional acoustic imaging methods with planar microphone arrays are unsuitable for three-dimensional acoustic imaging, given the computational demands and the incapability to explicitly account for the presence of multiple sources. This paper...

Many multi-microphone algorithms depend on knowing the relative acoustic transfer functions (RTFs) of the individual sound sources in the acoustic scene. However, accurate joint RTF estimation for multiple sources is a challenging problem. Existing methods to jointly estimate the RTF for multiple sources have either no satisfying performance, or...

In this paper we discuss the rational of the Multi-model Information based Speech Processing (MISP) Challenge, and provide a detailed description of the data recorded, the two evaluation tasks and the corresponding baselines, followed by a summary of submitted systems and evaluation results. The MISP Challenge aims at tack-ling speech processing...

Driving is a challenging task. When people operate vehicles they utilize all their senses to assess the current traffic scenario and determine appropriate actions to take. Sensors in autonomous driving applications aim to mimic those human senses to build a similar understanding of these complex circumstances. Most scientific attention in the...

This paper explores the advantages of combining asynchronous microphone array measurements for acoustic source mapping in two and three–dimensional applications. Four different approaches are considered, three consisting of the combination of the source maps (arithmetic mean, geometric mean, and minimum value), and a fourth one obtained by...

Aeroacoustic measurements performed by flush-mounted microphone arrays on the walls of closed-section wind tunnels are contaminated by the hydrodynamic pressure fluctuations of the wall's boundary layer. This study evaluates three different microphone cavity geometries for mitigating this issue. Their improvement to the signal-to-noise ratio ...

The newly refurbished vertical tunnel (V-tunnel) at Delft University of Technology has been redesigned as a state-of-the-art facility for research in aeroacoustics (A-tunnel), as well as fundamental studies in laminar-turbulent transition and flow control. This manuscript focuses on the design and refurbishment aspects of the facility,...

In this paper, the performance of four acoustic imaging methods: conventional frequency domain beamforming (CFDBF), functional beamforming (FUNBF), enhanced high resolution CLEAN–SC (EHR–CLEAN–SC) and generalized inverse beamforming (GIBF), is investigated in terms of accuracy and variability. Three experimental test cases are considered: 1)...

Over the past years, noise nuisance around airports strongly increased resulting in the need for aircraft noise reduction. Therefore, the noise sources should be known. This thesis assesses a new acoustic imaging method to identify sources on aircraft fly-over measurements. The proposed Global Optimisation (GO) algorithm is based on the theory...

Multi-microphone speech enhancement methods typically require a reference position with respect to which the target signal is estimated. Often, this reference position is arbitrarily chosen as one of the reference microphones. However, it has been shown that the choice of the reference microphone can have a significant impact on the final...

The present work analyses broadband noise scattering from permeable trailing edges with identical micro-structure but under a change of temperature. Experiments are performed in an anechoic wind tunnel using a NACA0018 airfoil at chord-based Reynolds numbers between 1.88 × 10<sup>5</sup> and 3.14 × 10<sup>5</sup> and no incidence. A...
