Abstract

We propose a method for localizing an acoustic source with distributed microphone networks. Time Differences of Arrival (TDOAs) of signals pertaining the same sensor are estimated through Generalized Cross-Correlation. After a TDOA filtering stage that discards measurements that are potentially unreliable, source localization is performed by minimizing a fourth-order polynomial that combines hyperbolic constraints from multiple sensors. The algorithm turns to exhibit a significantly lower computational cost compared with state-of-the-art techniques, while retaining an excellent localization accuracy in fairly reverberant conditions.
