Acoustic source localization and sound recognition are common acoustic scene analysis tasks that are usually considered separately. In this paper, a new source localization technique is proposed that works jointly with an acoustic event detection system. Given the identities and the end-points of simultaneous sounds, the proposed technique uses the statistical models of those sounds to compute a likelihood score for each model and for each signal at the output of a set of null-steering beamformers per microphone array. Those scores are subsequently combined to find the MAP-optimal event source positions in the room. Experimental work is reported for a scenario consisting of meeting-room acoustic events, either isolated or overlapped with speech. From the localization results, which are compared with those from the SRP-PHAT technique, it seems that the proposed model-based approach can be an alternative to current techniques for event-based localization. © 2014 IEEE.
