Abstract: Localization of impacts on solid surfaces is a challenging task due to dispersion where the velocity of wave propagation is frequency dependent. In this work, we develop a source localization algorithm on solids with applications to human-computer interface. We employ surface-mounted piezoelectric shock sensors that, in turn, allow us to convert existing flat surfaces to a low-cost touch interface. The algorithm estimates the time-differences-of-arrival between the signals via onset detection in the time-frequency domain. The proposed algorithm is suitable for vibration signals generated by a metal stylus and a finger. The validity of the algorithm is then verified on an aluminium and a glass plate surface.
