Intraoral Microphone Records Mouth/Breath Sounds for Pattern Recognition Software

Intraoral Microphone + ASR-type Software

Novel intraoral sensor can record physiological acoustic / nonacoustic sounds. Combined with sophisticated pattern recognition software, new diagnostic tools and paradigms can be produced.

Type of project: industry


Involved Persons:

Audiodontics sounds great for me. Can it involve speech sounds generated from teeth?
Yasuhito Takeuchi (non-member), 04/13/2011:
We have already done such a research independently. Report is here.

Congratulations for all the work. I am from Portugal, how can i be part of the development and testing. I have a lot of free time, that can be use to research and all the work.
Best regards, Pedro Oliveira

I am interested in your project as a method of HCI. Could we use the occlusal sounds to control a cursor on a display based on the occlusal sounds of the user? We could record the bone sounds by placing the sound transducer at the mastoid process. That way it will be inconspicuous. We could combine this with gesture recognition software. This will be a great boon for paraplegics. Imagine tilting the head to the right and cleanching the jaw would mean move the mouse to the right direction and a right click for example.
