One major issue of implementing broadband active noise control systems in reverberant
rooms is the lack of reference signals. In this work, by exploiting the spatial sound
field characteristics, a time-domain sound field separation method is developed to
generate the reference signal for broadband active noise control systems in reverberant
rooms. The time-domain sound field separation method separates the outgoing field produced
by the primary source from the secondary source feedback and room reverberation on a

Numerical simulations offer a feasible alternative to the direct acoustic measurement of individual head-related transfer functions (HRTFs). For the acquisition of high quality 3D surface scans, as required for these simulations, several approaches exist. In this paper, we systematically analyze the variations between different approaches and evaluate the influence of the accuracy of 3D scans on the resulting simulated HRTFs. To assess this effect, HRTFs were numerically simulated based on 3D scans of the head and pinna of the FABIAN dummy head generated with 6 different methods.

Echo labeling, the challenging task of assigning acoustic reflections to image sources, is equivalent to the highly-important disambiguation task in room geometry inference. A method using the Radon transform, an image processing tool, is proposed to address this challenge. The method relies on acoustic wavefront detection in room impulse response stacks, obtained with a uniform linear array of loudspeakers and one microphone. We show in our experiments that the proposed method can both label and detect echoes.

In this paper, we investigate the effects of compensating for wave-domain filtering delay in an active speech control system. An active control system utilising wave-domain processed basis functions is evaluated for a linear array of dipole secondary sources. The target control soundfield is matched in a least squares sense using orthogonal wavefields to a predicted future target soundfield. Filtering is implemented using a block-based short-time signal processing approach which induces an inherent delay.

In this paper we deal with the estimation of the room impulse response (RIR) between each loudspeaker and each microphone of a wireless acoustic network of two nodes when used to implement a crosstalk canceller. The nodes of the network are commercial devices connected via standard wireless links, presenting low computational requirements and non-ideal synchronization between them. Moreover, the nodes can exchange information, but they cannot share their signals due to the high throughput and perfect synchronism that would be required.

When using a set of generic head-related transfer functions (HRTFs) for spatial sound rendering, personalisation can be considered to minimise localisation errors. This typically involves tuning the characteristics of the HRTFs or a parametric model according to the listener’s anthropometry. However, measuring anthropometric features directly remains a challenge in practical applications, and the mapping between anthropometric and acoustic features is an open research problem.
