|Project Summary||Project Information|
Cubicle-style office environments are often not conducive to focused, solitary work because of the noise generated by other employees. This leaves a great opportunity for a productivity increase by eliminating the distracting noises of an office environment through the use of an active noise cancellation system. An active noise cancellation system consists of a microphone, speaker, and processing software (most likely by means of a computer) and is used to reduce the overall noise in an environment. The real time noise cancellation will allow for improved efficiency of office workers due to the absence of ambient auditory distractions. The system should use speakers and microphones already existing in office computers for data collection and operate in near real time. Currently, the basis for this project is the SPEA2 algorithm used in conjunction with a phase array based system for operation.
The goals of this project are to reduce the overall noise of the work environment within the bandwidth of the average human hearing capabilities in real time with minimal adjustments from the user. The expected result is a functional prototype consisting of a specialized algorithm based on the SPEA2 that is able to operate on a typical laptop speaker and microphone in order to reduce the noise of the current environment. The resulting design needs to align with project goals and serve as a functional prototype for backers to demonstrate feasibility for a possible consumer product.

Content Guidelines: Use these links below to guide you in populating your website. A few points to consider:
- Be aware of any information that your sponsor might not want publicly available. You can use the directory for this information, and it will be available only to those users with Guest access to your site.
- Do not post any files on your site that are not yours, unless you are certain that they are in the public domain or you have received permission to post them. Examples of files that you should avoid posting are copies of published papers, standards documents, textbook chapters/excerpts, or copyrighted images. If you have received a .pdf of a paper through Interlibrary Loan, or purchased an ASTM or ISO standard, you may post it in the private directory, where only your team and guide will have access to it.
- If you are including contact information for people that would otherwise not be publicly available, make sure you have their permission. For example, your faculty advisor's email address and office phone number are already publicly available on the KGCOE website, and is fine to post. However, if he or she has provided a cell phone number to the team, that is most likely not public information and should not be posted without explicit permission.
