dc.description.abstract We propose a spatial subtraction array (SSA) and known noise superimposition to achieve a noise-robust hands-free speech recognition which can be used in human-robot interaction. In the proposed SSA, noise reduction is achieved by subtracting the estimated noise power spectrum from the target speech power spectrum to be enhanced in the mel-scale filter bank domain. This offers a realization of error-robust spatial spectral subtraction with few computational complexities. In addition, we introduce known noise superimposition technique in the mel-scale filter bank domain, and utilize the matched acoustic model for the known noise. This can compensate the acoustic model mismatch and mask the residual noise component in SSA. The experimental results obtained under a real environment reveal that word accuracy of the proposed method is greater than that of the conventional method even when the target user moves between -10 and +10 degrees around the microphone array. en
