In this project, I tried to build a noise-cancellation system using DSK. Two microphones and one speaker were used in the system: the first microphone is to sample unexpected noises from the outside and the second microphone is to collect all the sounds, including both the desired sounds and unexpected noises. The second microphone detects and evaluates how well the noise cancellation works. I used Least Mean Square algorithm to implement Noise Cancellation system. The output of the adaptive filters in LMS algorithm would be phase shifted by 180 degrees and sent to a speaker to generate the anti-noise sound, which would cancel noises.
