In this paper, a speech signal recovery algorithm is presented for a personalized voice command automatic recognition system in vehicle and restaurant environments. This novel algorithm is able to separate a mixed speech source from multiple speakers, detect presence/absence of speakers by tracking the higher magnitude portion of speech power spectrum and adaptively suppress noises. An automatic speech recognition (ASR) process to deal with the multi-speaker task is designed and implemented. Evaluation tests have been carried out by using the speech da- tabase NOIZEUS and the experimental results show that the proposed algorithm achieves impressive performance improvements.
