Residual echo activity detection.

Started by neelufar.2005 October 29, 2007
Hi All,

Can any one help me to get documents related to Residual echo activity
detection i.e, to detect weather the output of acoustic echo cancellation
contain residual echo or not. Thanks in advance

Regards,
Neelufar.

The cancellation is never perfect, there is always some residual error (for the algorithms I am aware of). As the error gets smaller, the LMS algorithm makes smaller adjustments to the FIR coefficients until the adjustment increment is less than 1 LS bit. In practice, the acoustic environment is always subtly changing, so the algorithm is always hunting to try to resolve it.

You have been told many times already that there is always some amount of the residual echo. The question is not if there is an echo, the question is how much of echo is there. This can be only estimated to some accuracy by correlating the transmit signal and the residual signal. Vladimir Vassilevsky DSP and Mixed Signal Design Consultant http://www.abvolt.com
