Microphone Arrays for Improved Source Localisation.

beamforming smart home, acoustic source detection

Beamforming is achieved with spatial microphone distribution and electronic signal postprocessing by using  static or adaptive algorithms.
Such microphone arrays provides separation of simultaneous signals like background noise, speech of one or several speakers in the same room. They also support the elimination of disturbing room effects (like reverberation).
