7 7/14/2005Acoustic Localization by ILD7 ILD Formulation N microphones and a source signal s(t) Signal received by the i th microphone d i = distance from source to the i th microphone = additive white Gaussian noise Energy received by i th microphone

8 7/14/2005Acoustic Localization by ILD8 ILD Formulation For 2 mics the relation between energies and distances is Given E1 and E2 the sound source lies on a locus of points (a circle or line) described by where,

9 7/14/2005Acoustic Localization by ILD9 ILD Formulation For E1 ≠ E2 the equation becomes which is a circle with center and radius In 3D the circle becomes a sphere For E1= E2 the equation becomes which becomes a plane in 3D

11 7/14/2005Acoustic Localization by ILD11 ILD Localization With only two microphones source is constrained to lie on a curve The microphones cannot pinpoint the sound source location We use multiple microphone pairs The intersection of the curves yield the sound source location Why multiple microphone pairs?

12 7/14/2005Acoustic Localization by ILD12 Combined Likelihood Approach Then the estimate for the energy ratio at candidate location is Then the estimate for the energy ratio at candidate location is Define the energy ratio as Define the energy ratio as where is the location of the ith microphone is treated as a Gaussian is treated as a Gaussian random variable random variable Joint probability from multiple microphone Joint probability from multiple microphone pairs is computed by combining the pairs is computed by combining the individual log likelihoods individual log likelihoods Localize sound source by computing likelihood at a number of candidate locations:

13 7/14/2005Acoustic Localization by ILD13 Hilbert Transform The Hilbert transform returns a complex sequence, from a real data sequence. The complex signal x = x r + i*x i has a real part, x r, which is the original data, and an imaginary part, x i, which contains the Hilbert transform. The imaginary part is a version of the original real sequence with a 90° phase shift. Sines are therefore transformed to cosines and vice versa.
