Abstract

The paradigm for developing communication systems has begun to shift away from traditional analog hardware designs towards systems implemented in software and reconfigurable digital hardware. The Digital Acoustic Software Radio, developed in this project, uses the software radio paradigm and acoustic signals to transmit data wirelessly between two computers. Two fully functioning non-coherent 300 baud communication systems were implemented using Matlab, and their performance was evaluated in various acoustic environments. Reliable communication was achieved at distances up to 15 feet.
