This paper presents a real-time active noise controller system, based around a TMS320C50 DSP system board. The proposed technique consists of identifying the noisy space medium where the cancellation needs to be effected using a coded interrogation technique, and subsequently cancelling the noise using a simple, yet robust prediction strategy. Software coding and implementation has been achieved, with a signal-to-noise ratio improvement of up to 16 dB. The time taken to achieve this performance is about 32 s, for a wideband noise over the range 50 to 200 Hz. Once the system has learned the noise characteristics of the medium, it offers good tracking characteristics in cancelling the noise thereafter.
