The paper proposes an innovative technique for generation of optimal mother wavelet using LPC trajectory with special reference to speech recognition. A new wavelet based model is proposed for speech signal processing. Lower order linear predictor coefficients (LPC) are related to the vocal tract area near lip that is the articulating organ. The trajectory of second LPC is proposed for the generation of mother wavelet for speech recognition. The observation interval is selected as the pitch period that represents one complete cycle of speech waveform. LPC of order 10 are evaluated for each pitch synchronous (PS) segment. An innovative technique is proposed for the generation of mother wavelet. The mother wavelet is separately generated for each word utterance. This generates a multidimensional space for speech words and increases the recognition accuracy. The wavelet transform (WT) coefficients are evaluated with respect to the generated mother wavelet for each word utterance and are stored as template along with the generated mother wavelet for each word utterance. The data base consists of 30 word utterances recorded locally using the sound recorder facility. In the recognition mode, the external word utterance is scanned and is divided into PS segments. The trajectory of second LPC is tracked. WT coefficients are evaluated with respect to the mother wavelet of each word in the vocabulary and are compared with the template for each word. The results indicate 100% recognition accuracy.
