Automation of acoustic measurements constitutes a
considerable challenge to designers. On one hand, the special character of
acoustic measurements in an anechoic room requires designs that minimize
disturbances to the acoustic field; on the other hand, automation always
involves the introduction of additional mechanical elements, which disturb this
field. The authors of this paper attempt to reconcile these conflicting demands
by designing a mechatronic measurement system. On the basis of known solutions
and current measurement needs, a number of concepts has been proposed, and a
design has been identified that can be implemented in the room under study.
Keywords: acoustic measurements; anechoic room; mechatronics system; microphone boom
