Improved Localization of Sound Sources Using Multi-Band Processing of Ambisonic Components

Document Thumbnail

The current paper focuses on the use of multi-band ambisonic-processing for improved sound source localization. Energy-based localization can be easily delivered using soundfield microphone pairs, as long as free field conditions and the single omni-directional-point-source model apply. Multi-band SNR-based selective processing improves the noise tolerance and the localization accuracy, eliminating the influence of reverberation and background noise. Band-related sound-localization statistics are further exploited to verify the single or multiple sound-sources scenario, while continuous spectral fingerprinting indicates the potential arrival of a new source. Different sound-excitation scenarios are examined (single /multiple sources, narrowband / wideband signals, time-overlapping, noise, reverberation). Various time-frequency analysis schemes are considered, including filter-banks, windowed-FFT and wavelets with different time resolutions. Evaluation results are presented.
