Abstract: The application of noise reduction methods requires the integration of acoustics engineering and digital signal processing, which is well served by a mechatronic approach as described in this paper. The Normalised Least Mean Square (NLMS) algorithm is implemented on the Texas Instruments TMS320C6713 DSK Digital Signal Processor (DSP) as an adaptive digital filter for dental drill noise. Blocks within the Matlab/Simulink Signal Processing Blockset and the Embedded Target for TI C6000 DSP family are used. A working model of the algorithm is then transferred to the Code Composer Studio (CCS), where the desired code can be linked and transferred to the target DSP. The experimental rig comprises a noise reference microphone, a microphone for the desired signal, the DSK and loudspeakers. Different load situations of the dental drill are considered as the noise characteristics change when the drill load changes. The result is that annoying drill noise peaks, which occur in a frequency range from 1.5 kHz to 10 kHz, are filtered out adaptively by the DSP. Additionally a schematic design for its implementation in a dentist’s surgery will also be presented.
