車載マイクロフォンによる緊急車両の存在と方向検知システム The Detection System for Existence and Direction of Emergency Vehicle using Microphone on-Vehicle
Problem may arise when the drivers are unable to notice or late in noticing emergency vehicles due to the sealing nature of the vehicles, masking by the car audio system or car navigation operation, which poses a threat for common vehicles and emergency vehicles to collide at many crossing. Every minute, problem may arise at every crossing and it is dangerous to wait for the completion of the information infrastructure system, which requires suitable cost and time. Therefore, we propose a system for common vehicles, which detects emergency vehicles using microphone on-vehicle and produce warning information to the driver. In this research, our focus is for "Ambulance", "Fire Truck" and "Police Car". The siren for these vehicles is detected by means of a microphone on-vehicle. This project utilizes two microphones to in order to detect the direction in which incoming emergency vehicles are present. The system, which we propose, must be helpful to response quickly to emergency and rescue activities.
