Virtual System of Speaker Tracking by Camera Using an Audio-Based Source Localization

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors deal with the problem of automatic speaker tracking by camera. Such tracking systems do exist nowadays, but they suffer from a number of problems such as: the response time due to the system inertia, the disturbing motor noise and the mechanical oscillations of the mechatronic module. In order to overcome these problems, they thought to employ a virtual tracking system using a fixed camera that does not require any mechanical part. They have proposed and conceived a virtual tracking system which is able to ensure the required task by using only two cardioid microphones and a classic video camera.
