Experiments have been conducted using a variety of very low power EM sensors that measure articulator motions occurring in two frequency bands, 1 Hz to 20Hz, and 70 Hz to 7 kHz. They enable noise free estimates of a voiced excitation function, accurate pitch measurements, generalized transfer function descriptions, and detection of vocal articulator motions.
