Single-Channel Indoor Microphone Localization
We propose a novel method for single-channel microphone localization inside a known room. Unlike other approaches, we take advantage of the room reverberation, which enables us to use only a single fixed loudspeaker to localize the microphone. Our method uses an echo labeling approach that associates the echoes to the correct walls. Echo labeling leverages the properties of the Euclidean distance matrices formed from the distances between the virtual sources and the microphone. Experiments performed in a real lecture room verify the effectiveness of the proposed localization algorithm.
