High Performance Active Noise Control System for Engine Noise in a Car Cabin

A very effective and practical technique for active control of engine noise in a car cabin has been developed. By utilizing the repetitiveness of the engine noise and introducing the idea of error scanning, a new control algorithm was developed that requires only 30-50% of the arithmetic operations of the filtered-x least mean square method. A system with only 3 microphones allocated on the basis of the spatial distribution of the noise is able to make the whole cabin space quiet. Experimental results show that a maximum noise attenuation of 8dB(A) has been achieved at each seat position.

Detection of Transient Noise of Car Interior Using Non-stationary Signal Analysis

A method to inspect the rattle generated in a vehicle cabin has been developed. In the method, the waveform of overall in-cabin noise is analyzed using Wigner distribution, a kind of time-frequency analysis, and the rattle component of the waveform is condensed and separated from the background shake noise. Then the rattle component is classified into three levels, strong, middle and not detected, using a neural network. Fuzzy inference is also used to select normal waveform data. Experimental results show that the correct classification ratio of the method is more than 90%, which equals the ability of skilled inspectors.
