About this book
This book presents research and applications on arrival estimation and localization in speech processing to ensure that the broad vision of the direction of arrival estimation (DOAE) / localization of speech sources is well-established. The book first provides a brief overview of the most classical direction of arrival estimation and localization techniques. It then introduces the concept and model of acoustics sources and then highlights the most contemporary studies on this pervasive problem. In addition, the authors explore employing the optimization algorithms to improve the DOAE techniques. The book then highlights the concept and principles of the multi-DOAE approaches. Using a microphone array, the book introduces the localization and tracking problem of multiple speech/acoustic sources. It includes several applications and real-life speech sources localization based on the DOAE approaches. The book reports the challenges facing the DOAE techniques in speech-sources localization. The book pertains to researchers, designers, and engineers in speech processing fields.
