Sound source localization is important in a variety of contexts. A notable example is acoustic scene analysis for parametric spatial audio where not only recording the sound source but also deducing its direction is necessary. Sound source localization methods based on acoustic intensity provide a viable alternative to more traditional, delay-based techniques. However, special sound intensity probes or microphone arrays need to be used. This paper presents the evaluation of the sound source localization performance of an icosahedral open spherical microphone array using a method based on intensity vector distributions in time-frequency domain.
