This paper addresses the problem of automatic detection and recognition of impulsive sounds, such as glass breaks ,human screams, gunshots, explosions or door slams. A complete detection and recognition system is described and evaluated on a sound database containing more than 800 signals distributed among six different classes. Emphasis is set on robust techniques, allowing the use of this...
