    • Furniture, Toys, other family members
    • Orientation of person speaking away from audio collection device
  • Distance
    • Typical distances in Kitchen and other living areas could be 3 to 4 meters or more
  • Development
    • Collection of Audio Data & Synchronization with Audio
    • Detection of particular noises—glass break, etc
