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

This paper expands on a recent polynomial matrix formulation for a minimum variance distortionless response (MVDR) broadband beamformer. Within the polynomial matrix framework, this beamformer is a straightforward extension from the narrowband case, and offers advantages in terms of complexity and robustness particularly for off-broadside constraints. Here, we focus on arbitrary 3-dimensional array configurations of no particular structure, where the straightforward formulation and incorporation of constraints is demonstrated in simulations, and the beamformer accurately maintains its look direction while nulling out interferers.
