Base de données d’événements acoustiques isolés enregistrés en salle de réunion (FBK-Irst)
This database was produced within the CHIL Project (Computers in the Human Interaction Loop), in the framework of an Integrated Project (IP 506909) under the European Commission's Sixth Framework Programme. It contains a set of isolated acoustic events that occur in a meeting room environment and that were recorded for the CHIL Acoustic Event Detection (AED) task. The recorded sounds do not have temporal overlapping. The database can be used as training material for AED algorithms in quiet environments without temporal sound overlapping.
The database contains 16 semantic classes of acoustic events: door knock; door open; door slam; steps; chair moving; cough; paper wrapping; falling object; laugh; keyboard clicking; key jingle; spoon, cup jingle; phone ring; phone vibration; MIMIO pen buzz; applause.
9 people participated at the recordings. 3 experiments were recorded in different days, each one composed by 4 sessions and executed by 4 persons. During each session, every person reproduced a complete set of acoustic events. After every session, people swapped their positions.
There are 3 DVDs containing 3 sessions each. In every session there are 32 audio files + one text file containing the segmentation.
The database is made available freely via FTP.
