This paper presents an enhancement of a recently proposed method of joint pitch and direction of arrival extraction for speaker localization. We propose a new pre-processing module inspired by auditory system in order to estimate the multiple pitch and position values for multi-speaker scenarios. A detailed analysis of the module leads to the conclusion that the addition of the module in position-pitch estimation (PoPi) algorithm gives an intuitive representation of all active speakers in terms… CONTINUE READING
