Sound source tracking is an important function for a robot operating in a daily environment, because the robot should recognize where a sound event such as speech, music and other environmental sounds originates from. This paper addresses sound source tracking by integrating a room and a robot microphone array. The room microphone array consists of 64 microphones attached to the walls. It provides 2D (x-y) sound source localization based on a weighted delay-and-sum beamforming method. The robot… CONTINUE READING
