Localization of Simultaneous Moving Sound Sources for Mobile Robot Using a Frequency-Domain Steered Beamformer Approach

Preprint English OPEN
Valin, Jean-Marc; Michaud, François; Hadjou, Brahim; Rouat, Jean;

Mobile robots in real-life settings would benefit from being able to localize sound sources. Such a capability can nicely complement vision to help localize a person or an interesting event in the environment, and also to provide enhanced processing for other capabiliti... View more
