Topic status: In progress
This project will investigate acoustic environmental sensing using Beagleboard open source computers. In particular the project will investigate how sound can be captured processed and uploaded from such devices. The project would suit a student interested in Linux, sound and programming.
Research will focus on the trade-offs involved in recording, processing and transmitting sound on an embedded device. This will take the form of an investigation where a series of experiments are performed involving writing programs and taking measurements to investigate processing vs power vs communication trade-offs. Devices will be trialled in the field at QUT’s Samford Ecological Research Facility.
The expected outcomes for this project are a:
- a prototype system
- a short report / paper on findings.
The duration of the project is 8 weeks.
