—In today's teaching and learning approaches for first-semester students, practical courses more and more often complement traditional theoretical lectures. This practical element allows an early insight into the real world of engineering, augments student motivation, and enables students to acquire soft skills early. This paper describes a new freshman(More)
This paper addresses the fundamental problem of multi-channel system identification given the multiple input and single output signals of a MISO system. The presented approach is based on the normalized least mean square (NLMS) algorithm in combination with a set of special excitation signals, constructed from so called perfect sequences (PSEQs). The new(More)
CONCLUSION Sonotubometry with perfect sequences (PSEQ) was able to detect eustachian tube (ET) openings in both normal and pathological ears. Impaired ears showed ET openings in almost all cases; however, these proved to be not only less frequent, but also with lower amplitude and shorter duration. OBJECTIVES To investigate the function of impaired ET(More)
Fast and robust acoustic system identification is still a research topic of interest, because of the typically time-variant nature of acoustic systems and the natural performance limitation of electroacoustic measurement equipment. In this paper, we propose NLMS-type adaptive identification with perfect-sweep excitation. The perfect-sweep is derived from(More)
Methods for measuring the impulse response of a linear transmission system and system identification algorithms in general must be robust against noise in the measured system response. To handle the noise it is of great advantage to know the instantaneous signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), especially in situations with changing noise conditions. In this paper we(More)
Besides lectures of theoretical foundations, contemporary teaching and learning concepts for first semester students consider more and more practically motivated courses. In this context, a new first-year student introduction course in practical engineering is established in the first semester curriculum of Electrical Engineering at RWTH Aachen University,(More)
