It is important to make measurement of acoustic parameters such as Sound intensity, Reverberation Time, Background noise level for classrooms and seminar halls. This helps the designer in improving the acoustics of the classroom and seminar halls for Speech intelligibility. In this paper, we report on the autonomous Robotic explorer ASPARAGUS that has been applied for Classroom and Seminar hall acoustic parameters measurement. We discuss on the design of the robotic explorer and show how the measurements can be accurately carried out.
