A system based on a modified pitch detection method is proposed that can be used for the detection of acoustical signals the frequency components of which vary according to specific periodic patterns. Usually, signals of this category are produced by the siren of an emergency vehicle. The detection of this type of signals can improve the safety of guide for hearing impaired people by alerting the driver with a visual indication for example by putting on a light point on the map of a navigator… CONTINUE READING
