Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Applications such as broadband angle of arrival estimation require the implementation of accurate broadband steering vectors, which generally rely on fractional delay filter designs. These designs commonly exhibit a rapidly decreasing performance as the Nyquist rate is approached. To overcome this, we propose a filter bank based approach, where standard fractional delay filters operate on a series of frequency-shifted oversampled subband signals, such that they appear in the filter's lowpass region. Simulations demonstrate the appeal of this approach.
