Dr Ronald A.J. van Elburg
Smart Systems Engineering Programme
Ronald van Elburg is co-founder of SoundAppraisal BV. For SoundAppraisal he develops technologies needed to estimate human sound perception from ‘sound textures’. Sound textures are features indicative for structure in sound and were first developed for use in the Sensor City Sound project. Sound textures now form the basis of SoundAppraisal’s sound source detectors and human sound appraisal estimation techniques.
Ronald van Elburg is a lecturer in the master degree programme Smart Systems Engineering. His teaching is focused on the mathematics underlying signal processing, control theory, data fusion and machine learning.
