Acknowledgements

We would like to thank Professor Robert Morley for his mentorship and weekly guidance. His help in the design process prevented us from faltering in the face of bugs and faulty algorithms.

We would also like to thank Professor Ed Richter for providing us with the 16 element microphone array, the medium through which we explored acoustic beamforming.

Finally, we would like to thank Xiangyang Mou for the LabVIEW and MATLAB files which we used to acquire signals from the microphone array. We would have spent many hours devising our own VI and scripts had Xianyang Mou not laid a foundation in the Summer of 2015.
