In this letter, we propose a decentralized framework for rate-distributed linearly constrained minimum variance (LCMV) beamforming in wireless acoustic sensor networks. To save the energy usage within the network, we propose to minimize the transmission cost and put a constrai ...

The recently proposed relaxed binaural beamforming (RBB) optimization problem provides a flexible tradeoff between noise suppression and binaural-cue preservation of the sound sources in the acoustic scene. It minimizes the output noise power, under the constraints, which guar ...

Binaural cues are important for sound localization. In addition, spatially separated sound sources are more intelligible than when they are co-located. Binaural cue preservation in multi-microphone hearing assistive devices is therefore important for the user's listening exper ...

While the majority of binaural beamformers aim to minimize the output noise power while (approximately) preserving the binaural cues of the sources using constraints, we propose in this paper to minimize the binaural-cue distortions of the sources in the acoustic scene, such t ...

One of the biggest challenges in multimicrophone applications is the estimation of the parameters of the signal model, such as the power spectral densities (PSDs) of the sources, the early (relative) acoustic transfer functions of the sources with respect to the microphones, t ...

Factor analysis is a popular tool in multivariate statistics, applied in several areas of study such as psychology, economics, chemistry and signal processing. Given a set of observed random variables, factor analysis aims at explaining and analyzing the correlation between th ...

We propose a new robust distributed linearly constrained beamformer which utilizes a set of linear equality constraints to reduce the cross power spectral density matrix to a block-diagonal form. The proposed beamformer has a convenient objective function for use in arbitrary ...
