The use of speech recognition in automotive environments has received increased attention in recent times. Unfortunately, evaluations of algorithms designed to improve recognition performance in this environment have been performed on differing data collections, making results difficult to compare. In recent years, the University of Illinois released a large in-car audio and visual data collection known as AVICAR ("audio-visual speech in a car") [1]. The AVICAR database is freely available, but to date no uniform evaluation protocol on which to perform experiments has been reported. This paper introduces a speaker-independent, continuous speech recognition evaluation protocol for the audio data of the AVICAR database. It is designed to allow for model adaptation, evaluation and testing using native English speakers. Baseline recognition results obtained using this protocol are also presented.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
