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

Simplified broadband beamformers can be constructed by sharing a single tapped-delay-line within a narrowband subarray. This paper discusses the use of fractional delay filters to a steering in the digital domain. For the narrowband subarrays, an optimisation approach is proposed to maintain an off-broadside look direction constraint as best as possible across a given frequency range. We demonstrate the advantage that this approach has for generating beamformers with accurate off-broadside look direction compared to a benchmark.
