Intelligent Ultra Low-Power Signal Processing for Automotive

Project description

Watch out for the new smart cars that can 'hear'

Motorists need to be physically and mentally fit to drive safely, and this includes having strong vision and hearing. For instance, drivers need good eyesight to be able to spot trouble and judge distances. Luckily, cars are becoming 'smarter'. Today’s vehicles are benefitting from advancements made in computers and are being equipped with devices such as proximity sensors designed to alert the driver of obstacles while parking. The EU-funded I-SPOT project is taking this one step further, targeting the addition of acoustic sensing technology to cars. Its aim is to enable sensing, localisation and analysis of environmental audio signals during active (drive) and passive (park) car mode.

Objective

Smart autos need to process and react to different types of stimuli from the surrounding environment. This data sensing and processing is performed with the support of different sensors, gathered data and the proper hardware platform to process the received data and react properly to the simuli whenever required. This project targets audio stimuli and considers two important challenges: Processing and localisation of the Audio signal based on the classic as well as deep learning methods
