An Interpolation-Free and Fitting-Less Sub-sample Time-Delay Estimation Algorithm
In this paper we propose a new algorithm for sub-sample time-delay estimation between two discrete-time signals. The new algorithm operates just over the discrete-time signals without the need for interpolation or fitting. The proposed method is compared with a method based on spline fitting, and that is referred to outperform other methods over a broader set of conditions (Viola&Walker, 2005). The new approach, besides presenting a low computational cost (70% less), seemed to outperforms the spline approach in situations of high noise levels (typically signal-to noise ratios smaller than 20dB).
