The Australian In-Car Speech Corpus is a multi-channel recording of a series of prompts from an in-car navigation task collected over a range of speakers in a variety of driving conditions. Its purpose is to provide a significant resource of speech data appropriate for investigating speech processing needs in the adverse environment of a car. Utterances spoken by 50 speakers were collected in seven different driving conditions, providing the foundation for investigation into noisy, speaker-independent speech processing. Speech recognition experiments are performed to validate the data, to provide baseline results for in-car speech recognition research, and to show that this data can improve speech recognition performance under adverse in-car conditions for Australian English when adapting from American English acoustic models.

Search Google Scholar™

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.
