Notice: As of 2014 and for the forthcoming years, the publication frequency/periodicity of NAUN Journals is adapted to the 'continuously updated' model. What this means is that instead of being separated into issues, new papers will be added on a continuous basis, allowing a more regular flow and shorter publication times. The papers will appear in reverse order, therefore the most recent one will be on top.

Abstract: This paper presents a new idea of impulse response shortening in time difference of arrival (TDOA) measurement algorithm for underwater acoustic localization. Due to strong multipath interference caused by acoustic wave reflection, the pseudo-peaks occur when calculating a correlation function. Their pseudo-peaks disturbs the detection of a correct time position and leads to large TDOA measurement errors. In our previous paper, we presented the impulse response based GCC-PHAT (IR-GCC-PHAT), which computes a time difference by taking a cross-correlation between two impulse responses. As the further improvement, we study the effects of impulse response shortening that removes the pseudo-peaks. The effectiveness of impulse response shortening is explained by observing acoustic wave paths on an acoustic propagation simulator and verified by the simulation results
