    TERC
    Tuned Electromagnetic Resonance Collar

    The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s (DARPA) Advanced Speech Encoding project is developing non-acoustic sensor technologies such as the Tuned Electromagnetic Resonance Collar (TERC). TERC is a capacitor worn around the neck that is sensitive to tiny movements in the wearer’s vocal cords. Its capacitance changes are measured and processed by microchips and converted into synthesized human speech by computers running custom-made software. However, the TERC technology is still unable to detect plosives and fricatives [...].
