Resumen:
An analysis of the relationship between the bandwidth of acoustic signals and the required resolution of steered-response power phase transform (SRP-PHAT) maps used for sound source localization is presented. This relationship does not rely on the far-field assumption, nor does it depend on any specific array topology. The proposed analysis considers the computation of a SRP map as a process of sampling a set of generalized cross-correlation (GCC) functions, each one corresponding to a different microphone pair. From this approach, we derive a rule that relates GCC bandwidth with inter-microphone distance, resolution of the SRP map, and the potential position of the sound source relative to the array position. This rule is a sufficient condition for an aliasing-free calculation of the specified SRP-PHAT map. Simulation results show that limiting the bandwidth of the GCC according to such rule leads to significant reductions in sound source localization errors when sources are not in the immediate vicinity of the microphone array. These error reductions are more relevant for coarser resolutions of the SRP map, and they happen in both anechoic and reverberant environments.
