Signal processing applied to the dolphin-based sonar system

Houser, Martin, Phillips, Bauer, Herrin, Moore
2003 Oceans 2003. Celebrating the Past ... Teaming Toward the Future (IEEE Cat. No.03CH37492)  
The wet-end unit, constructed by ARL-UT, is integrated around the Analog Devices SP 21061 SHARC processor architecture.  ...  The bottlenose dolphin has evolved a unique system of biosonar, or echolocation, that allows it to exploit a visually limited littoral niche.  ...  The DBS projector and receivers are attached to a COTS pan-and-tilt unit that permits +/-170 0 of pan and +/-170 0 of tilt.  ...

Acoustic Sensors for Air and Surface Navigation Applications

Rohan Kapoor, Subramanian Ramasamy, Alessandro Gardi, Ron Schyndel, Roberto Sabatini
2018 Sensors  
In particular, this paper focuses on echolocation, which is widely utilized in nature by certain mammals (e.g., cetaceans and bats).  ...  Although acoustic sensors have been extensively adopted in various engineering applications, their use in navigation and guidance systems is yet to be fully exploited.  ...  A.G. contributed to the echolocation error analysis and development of code for Figure 2 . He also contributed to the literature review, revision of manuscript and replies to reviewer comments.  ...

Mammals like bats and dolphins constantly use echolocation techniques to navigate and communicate.  ...  Then, the number of vertices becomes N V = 8 cot(90/2) + 2 cot(270/2) + 7 cot(270/2) = −1. Fig. 2 . 2 17 .  ...

High‐intensity, focused ultrasonic fields

Leif Bjørnoø
1988 Journal of the Acoustical Society of America  
The basics of the measurement technique, using two-microphone probes or pressure-velocity probes, and the appropriate dedicated instrumentation or more general computer use, will be discussed.  ...  The intensity technique was initially developed for sound power measurements but it can be used as a general tool for sound field investigations.  ...  In this paper, three electronic measurement devices used with Apple II computers in dolphin echolocation experiments will be discussed.  ...

Device-free positioning using a ceiling-based visible light sensing system

Minitha Jawahar
2018
Device-free positioning can be of use in many applications; for example, in a smart home, it would be useful for the lights in the bedroom to turn on once a person enters, and for it to turn off once they  ...  These unique shadow patterns can be used in turn to estimate the position of the person. Using this setup, a low localization error of 2 feet is obtained.  ...  Figure 6 .6: The circled dip is what the receiver uses to interpret whether or not a shadow is present, so the longer the dip, easier and more accurate the processing. a) receiver is 8 ft from the transmitter  ...

Real-time depth imaging

Uwe Hahne, Technische Universität Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, Marc Alexa
2012
We focus on ToF imaging and the utilization of ToF cameras based on the photonic mixer device (PMD) principle. These cameras provide per pixel distance information in real-time.  ...  Blind people orientate from the surrounding noise (passive) or even try to use human echolocation [117] (active).  ...  On one hand, such examples are comprehensible due to the high occurrence in every day situations. On the other hand, nowadays depth sensing devices are already embedded in cars.  ...

Errors of egocentric localization and eye-hand co ordination are produced by placing prisms over the eyes of subjects.  ...  Adaptation in either eye-hand coordination or egocentric localization requires that during the exposure the sequence of retinal stimulation be con- tingent upon self-produced body movement. 4:10.  ...

Sounding the reef: comparative acoustemologies of underwater noise pollution

Matthew Buttacavoli
2020
There is very little surface area to produce an echo so a dolphin passively echolocating might miss the structure. The solution: acoustic warning devices-also known as "pingers."  ...  Marine biologists calibrate their instruments to pick up high-frequency sound because they assume that the orcas will hunt using echolocation.  ...

Ocean, platform, and signal processing effects on synthetic aperture sonar performance

Kenneth D. Rolt
1991 Journal of the Acoustical Society of America  
The ocean influence on SAS imagery is shown to depend on (1) the extent of spatial/temporal coherence which limits the useful aperture length that may be used for sharp imaging, and (2) the refraction  ...  This model, the most extensive ever used for SAS simulations, has been verified by comparison to a SAS ocean experiment performed by others.  ...  Sonar, meanwhile, had been routinely used for navigation and food-finding purposes by bats and cetaceans (whales) but was not used by man for echolocation until the early 1910s.  ...

Listening to Distances and Hearing Shapes:Inverse Problems in Room Acoustics and Beyond

Ivan Dokmanić
2015
Yet, somewhat surprisingly, in rooms one can do localization more accurately than in free-field if the room geometry is known [8, 175, 177, 61] .  ...  We apply it to indoor localization using only a single omnidirectional sensor (which is impossible in free space), and how to localize in non-convex spaces.  ...  In that case, it pays to use "sparse pseudoinverses" instead of the usual Moore-Penrose pseudoinverse.  ...

On his belt, the boxy device--the one he had used before--started beeping wildly. The weatherman looked between his soiled boots and Black, who was still bent over, hands on his knees.  ...  "Jesus," he said, sitting down heavily on her cot. "He's alive."  ...
