Plane wave identification with circular arrays by means of a finite rate of innovation approach

Hoffmann, Falk-Martin, Fazi, Filippo and Nelson, Philip (2016) Plane wave identification with circular arrays by means of a finite rate of innovation approach At 140th International AES Convention, France. 04 - 07 Jun 2016. 14 pp.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Many problems in the field of acoustic measurements depend on the direction of incoming wave fronts w.r.t. a measurement device or aperture. This knowledge can be useful for signal processing purposes such as noise reduction, source separation, de-aliasing, and super-resolution strategies among others. This paper presents a signal processing technique for the identification of the directions of travel for the principal plane wave components in a sound field measured with a circular microphone array. The technique is derived from a finite rate of innovation data model and the performance is evaluated by means of a simulation study for different numbers of plane waves in the sound field.
