In the real working environment,the mobile robots have a poor recognition performance to speech control commands due to the noise effect. Aiming at this issue,this paper proposes a new algorithm based on the gammatone frequency cepstral coefficient and the mixed feature extraction of the Teager energy operator. This algorithm replaces the common Mel filter with the Gammatone filter. In the process of extracting gammatone frequency cepstral coefficients,the Teager energy operator reflecting the energy of speech signal is added to form a new feature, with the dynamic characteristics of the speech signal considered. It is combined with the first-order difference parameters to form a mixed feature. And the principal component analysis is made to reduce the dimension,and the final mixed features are used to the speech recognition system for control command of the mobile robot. Experimental results show that,in the environment of the workshop noise and signal-to-noise ratio of 10dB,the recognition rate of mixed features is improved by 12.20% compared with the mel frequency cepstrum coefficient. The recognition rate of the mixed feature is increased by 1.02% when the dimension is reduced by principal component analysis.

Key words: Gammatone filter, Teager energy operator, feature extraction, robot control
