  • Human Activity Recognition Based on Two-Dimensional Acoustic Arrays

    Human activity recognition has been used in practical applications, gaming, monitoring of smart home, fire searching and rescuing, hospital patient management, etc. One or few acoustic sensors are used in conventional detection, which is required more features extracted from acoustic data for high accuracy. In this study, two-dimensional acoustic arrays are proposed for human activity recognition using convolutional neural networks. The experiments are employed to collect four activities (standing, sitting, falling, and walking) of volunteers. The features, as input of convolutional neural networks, are extracted from time- and frequency-domain data. The accuracy of the four activities is 97.5% for time-domain data. The results demonstrate the proposed method is effective in human activity recognition with high accuracy.

  • CRB-optimal sensor placement for multiple passive acoustic arrays

    This paper describes a method for selecting the location of multiple passive acoustic arrays to optimize information collection. The passive acoustic arrays are used to localize a contact, and our goal is to choose how to situate and orient the arrays to optimize this localization estimate. To this end, we derive the Cramér-Rao bound on the variance of the estimate of a target's location as a function of where the sensing resources are placed. We then use this bound to select where to place the sensors. We illustrate the method by selecting where to place and orient 5 arrays in a region.

  • Development of a small boat deployment and recovery system for fiber optic acoustic arrays

    The Small Boat Deployment System (SBDS) was developed for the Mobile Inshore Underwater Warfare System Upgrade (MIUW-SU) program to deploy and recover two acoustic arrays and 8-km (4.3 nm) of fiber optic/electrical trunk cable from a 6.7 m (22-ft) Boston Whaler outboard motor boat. The arrays are part of a transportable surveillance system for guarding near shore assets that integrates visual, thermal, radar, EMS and acoustic data. The SBDS consists of a tension limited hydraulic winch, a flexible boom, line thrower, precision GPS navigation system, and acoustic release. The hydraulic winch is controlled by an adjustable relief valve to limit tension during deployment and retrieval. Tension control is needed for preventing damage to the fiber optic cable and for a proper deployment. A flexible boom acts like a fishing pole to even out the dynamic loads caused by boat motion. A line thrower is used to shoot a messenger line over the surf zone to shore. The precision GPS is needed to guide the boat along a predetermined route. An acoustic release is used to recover the array. The development program consisted of testing two experimental prototypes and then combining features from both for the final production system. The first prototype tested tension limited controls on a commercially available hydraulic winch and were used to deploy and recover a 10-km (5.4 nm) cable and array from a 15 m (50-ft) boat. The second prototype used a small capacity electric winch for testing procedures and components on a 6.7-m (22-ft) boat. The production system will be tested on a variety of boats with different shore and sea conditions. The SBDS will be delivered to MIUW units in Jan. 96.

  • Four-dimensional sound source recovery from arbitrary acoustic arrays

    Current acoustical recording systems provide limited flexibility in sound recovery; single microphone systems reconstruct sound over time at a single spatial location, or "one-dimensional" (temporal) recording, whereas arrays may provide isolation in an azimuthal direction of along a pencil beam (two or three dimensional, respectively). Full four-dimensional recovery of a source at any spatial location, particularly using an arbitrary, modest array of acoustical sensors, enables many new applications. A modified frequency-domain MVDR adaptive beamforming algorithm especially tailored for high-performance recovery of nonstationary targets in similar background demonstrates in simulation SIR gains of over 12 dB for speech-in-speech acoustic target recovery, even in situations with more sources than sensors.

  • Dispersion estimation from borehole acoustic arrays using a modified matrix pencil algorithm

    A new array processing algorithm is presented for estimating dispersion characteristics from borehole acoustic measurements. It involves estimating the propagating modes of the borehole response function by first Fourier transforming the space-time array in the time dimension, then at each temporal frequency, the spatial wavenumber of the modes are obtained using a modified matrix pencil algorithm. This modification is referred to as "forward/backward averaging" as the complex wavenumber estimates are formed from the average of a "forward" matrix pencil and a "backward" matrix pencil. Use of a tolerance specification between the estimates allows a natural discrimination between signal and noise wavenumbers.

  • Project Centurion: installation of lightweight acoustic arrays in shallow water

    In July 2004, a team of the Naval Facilities Engineering Service Center (NFESC), Northrop Grumman Corporation, and Sound & Sea Technology, Inc. installed a passive acoustic underwater harbor security system in shallow water off Hueneme Harbor, California. The system is comprised of two arrays using advanced-technology optical-fiber hydrophones cabled to a processing center on shore. This system has operated successfully since it was installed and survived the severe winter, 2005 storms. The system has been tested in a series of exercises against a variety of targets and has demonstrated the ability to detect and track both surface and subsurface intruders. The system will be augmented with a variety of additional sensors for integration into a comprehensive port and harbor security system

  • An integrated observation system with multiple acoustic arrays for underwater behavioral study of the Ganges river dolphins

    The authors have been developing an acoustic observation system that can record the high frequency bio-sonar clicks of the Ganges river dolphins and can estimate their 3-D location in real-time. In order to expand the coverage of the acoustic measurement, a new integrated observation system, which consists of one main array system and the newly developed multiple small array system, is proposed. For the first step, we deployed one main array and one small 4-hydrophone cross array system in the Ganges River. Combining the measurement results of the two array systems, we successfully obtained improved estimates of acoustic positions of the sound source than that of a single stand-alone measurement.

  • Investigations of energetic characteristics of the acoustic arrays in a shallow sea

  • Investigation of performance of acoustic arrays for equalization in a reverberant environment

    This paper considers the performance of multichannel sound equalization in reverberant environments. Such a system could be used, for example, in hands- free communication devices or virtual audio systems. Using results from statistical room acoustics, we derive a theoretical expression that predicts the degradation in performance of an ideal equalization system as the sound source moves from its nominal position. This provides bounds on the performance that one could expect to achieve when using an equalization system in an actual room. We then use computer simulations to investigate the effect of physical parameters such as the relative positions of the source and the receivers, as well as effects of different design parameters. Based on these investigations, we provide design guidelines on how to maximize the robustness of a multichannel acoustic equalization system.

  • A new method to decrease grating sidelobes level in medical acoustic arrays

    The design of a medical acoustic array for a given echographic system is often a compromise between the lateral resolution and the grating sidelobe level. For a fixed number of active channels, the only way to decrease the grating sidelobe level is to decrease the array pitch. This can be done by working with an acoustical pitch smaller than the electrical pitch, which is possible by using an electrical passive interpolation circuit between the electrical channels and the transducers. This method takes advantage of the fact that in echographic systems the sampling of the array is generally limited by the maximum number of electronic channels and not by the minimum technically achievable pitch on the transducer. The theoretical analysis and design of such arrays are described. This technique was used to construct a 3.75-MHz curved array. The result is a 10-dB improvement of the sidelobe level.<<ETX>>
