Signal Processing / Acoustic Camera

The Signal Processing group researches and develops new algorithms as well as hardware and software solutions for multi-channel measuring systems. Our expertise includes the sample-synchronous acquisition, presentation and analysis of large data sets using high sampling frequencies and data transfer rates.

Areas of application are vibration analysis, noise reduction, sound design and quality assurance in the automotive industry, environmental technology in room acoustics and architectural acoustics. An outstanding result of our work is the invention and development of the first Acoustic Camera, a system to visualize sound source.
