An integrated acoustic echo and noise cancellation system for hands-free telephony is presented. The proposed system includes a new residual echo cancellation scheme based on spectral analysis and a new double-talk detector suitable for real-time implementation. Residual echo is whitened via AR analysis during no near-end-talk period and is cancelled by noise reduction. Removing speech characteristics of the residual echo signal, noise reduction successfully reduces the power of the residual echo as well as the ambient noise. For further integration with commercial low-bit rate speech coders, noise reduction in IS-127 (EVRC) was considered. For the hands-free situation in the moving car, the proposed system attenuated the interferences more than 30 dB at a constant speed of 90 km/h. The proposed system was implemented on a low-cost DSP with 16-bit fixed-point arithmetic.
