Echo detection for Ultrasonic wave

Recommended Posts

Hello :D

I have simulated and ultrasonic wave and want to estimate the echo apparition by getting the pics and valleys and giving the time of apparition of a meaningfull pic of my echo. which itself represent the time of flight. knowing the time associated to my pics is my question.

Thank you very much for any Help!

A technique called "cepstral" analysis is often used to find echoes. I don't think LabVIEW has a cepstrum VI that comes with the standard analysis library but MATLAB does


There is cepstral analysis in the adavanced signal processing toolkit

thank you for your answer. 

@MarkCG do you suggest me to use the matlab code in Labview ? 

I have read about it and it seem to be use for echo cancelation.

@Jordan Kuehn I have a similar question. The context is: I will like to estimate the time of apparition of and ultrasonic echo. 

I have used elements of your snippet. The "get a wave form subset" give a subset in a different timetable independent of the timetable of the main waveform, I could use it if it maintain the timetable of the main waveform.

the "seach waveform" search a given value and return the index I think. Any recomendation please ?
