—Teleconferencing systems employ acoustic echo can-celers to reduce echoes that result from coupling between the loudspeaker and microphone. To enhance the sound realism, two-channel audio is necessary. However, in this case (stereophonic sound) the acoustic echo cancellation problem is more difficult to solve because of the necessity to uniquely identify(More)
—In this paper, we extend our previous studies on adaptive blind channel identification from the time domain into the frequency domain. A class of frequency-domain adaptive approaches, including the multichannel frequency-domain LMS (MCFLMS) and constrained/unconstrained normalized mul-tichannel frequency-domain LMS (NMCFLMS) algorithms, are proposed. By(More)
The problem of identifying a single-input multiple-output FIR system without a training signal, the so-called blind system identiÿcation, is addressed and two multi-channel adaptive approaches, least mean square and Newton algorithms, are proposed. In contrast to the existing batch blind channel identiÿcation schemes, the proposed algorithms construct an(More)
—A linear-correction least-squares estimation procedure is proposed for the source localization problem under an additive measurement error model. The method, which can be easily implemented in a real-time system with moderate computational complexity, yields an efficient source location estimator without assuming a priori knowledge of noise distribution.(More)
—To find the position of an acoustic source in a room, typically, a set of relative delays among different microphone pairs needs to be determined. The generalized cross-correlation (GCC) method is the most popular to do so and is well explained in a landmark paper by Knapp and Carter. In this paper, the idea of cross-correlation coefficient between two(More)
—Blind separation of independent speech sources from their convolutive mixtures in a reverberant acoustic environment is a difficult problem and the state-of-the-art blind source separation techniques are still unsatisfactory. The challenge lies in the coexistence of spatial interference from competing sources and temporal echoes due to room reverberation(More)
—Bell Laboratories layered space-time (BLAST) wireless systems are multiple-antenna communication schemes that can achieve very high spectral efficiencies in scattering environments with no increase in bandwidth or transmitted power. The most popular and, by far, the most practical architecture is the so-called vertical BLAST (V-BLAST). The signal detection(More)
—A doubletalk detector (DTD) is used with an echo can-celer to sense when far-end speech is corrupted by near-end speech. Its role is to freeze the adaptation of the model filter when near-end speech is present in order to avoid divergence of the adaptive algorithm. Several authors have proposed to use the cross-correlation coefficient vector between the(More)
