Abstract
"Acoustic sensor network clock synchronization via time stamp exchange between the sensor nodes is not accurate enough for many acoustic signal processing tasks, such as speaker localization. To improve synchronization accuracy it has therefore been proposed to employ a Kalman Filter to obtain improved frequency deviation and phase offset estimates. The estimation requires a statistical model of the errors of the measurements obtained from the time stamp exchange algorithm. These errors are caused by random transmission delays and hardware effects and are thus network specific. In this contribution we develop an algorithm to estimate the parameters of the measurement error model alongside the Kalman filter based sampling clock synchronization, employing the Expectation Maximization algorithm. Simulation results demonstrate that the online estimation of the error model parameters leads only to a small degradation of the synchronization performance compared to a perfectly known observation error model."
