Abstract: Noise pollution these days has been known as one of the major problems in our daily lives. As Singapore continues building more housing and buildings, the number of construction sites increases, contributing to noise pollution. These noises affect us mentally and can lead to serious health problems. By borrowing the same technology used in noise-cancelling headphones, Active Noise Control (ANC) can be used to mitigate these noises. The aim of this study is to investigate the different feature extraction techniques and classification methods to improve the performance of the ANC system, reducing as much noise that can be heard outside the construction site as fast as possible. The general idea is analysing noise signal features and pre-training the noise signal with certain features to get the corresponding optimal control filters. For practical application, the senses noise is classified online, and the corresponding optimal control filter is assigned to control the signal. Thus, the accuracy will give an indicator on how effective these methods are. Noise samples are collected and divided into two sets, one for training, one for validation. For the training set, feature extraction and classification are conducted. Validation is conducted on the validation set. The extraction of MFCC along with the MLP and CNN models have shown relatively high accuracy scores. Achieving 95% training accuracy and 89% testing accuracy for MLP, and 98% training accuracy and 91% testing accuracy for CNN.
