Abstract: This paper presents a method for automatically detecting vehicle mounted auditory reverse alarms, or other similar warning signals, based on hidden Markov model and pattern matching techniques. The method is designed for embedded realtime platforms. The purpose of the method is to embed it with active hearing protection devices, aiding the user in detecting warning signals in low SNR environments. Real recordings are used to evaluate the performance, and the results are presented.
