Abstract: A huge increase in automobile field h as lead t o the creation of different sounds in large volume, especially in urban cities. An analysis of the increased quantity of automobiles will give information related to traffic and vehicles. It also provides a scope to understand the scenario of particular location using sound scape information. In this paper, a two level classification is proposed to classify urban sound events such as bus engine (BE), bus horn (BH), car horn (CH) and whistle (W) sounds. The above sounds are taken as they place a major role in traffic scenario. A real-time data is collected from the live recordings at major locations of the urban city. Prior to the detection of events, the class of events is identified u sing signal processing techniques. Further, features such as Mel-frequency cepstral coefficients (MFCCs) a re extracted based on the analysis of a spectrum of the above-mentioned events and they are prominent to classify even in the complex scenario. Classifiers such as artificial neural networks (ANN), naive-Bayesian (NB), decision tree (J48), random forest (RF) are used at two levels. The proposed approach outperforms the existing approaches that usually does direct feature extraction without signal level analysis. � 2016 IEEE.
