Announcement by Dominic Létourneau (IntRoLab, Université de Sherbrooke) to ros-users

Hello ROS users,

The ManyEars project propose a robust sound source localization and tracking method using an array of eight microphones. The method is based on a frequency-domain implementation of a steered beamformer along with a particle filter-based tracking algorithm. Tests on a mobile robot show that the algorithm can localize and track in real-time multiple moving sources of different types over a range of 7 meters. These new capabilities allow robots to interact using more natural means with people in real life settings.

The ManyEars project is available here :

http://manyears.sourceforge.net

IntRoLab has released new ROS packages for the ManyEars library on GitHub. IntRoLab's packages and documentation are available here :

Enjoy!

Regards,

Dominic Létourneau, ing., M.Sc.A.
