Abstract

Source localization using the steered response power (SRP) usually requires a costly grid-search procedure. To address this issue, a modified SRP algorithm was recently introduced, providing improved robustness when using coarser spatial grids. In this letter, an iterative method based on the modified SRP is presented. A coarse spatial grid is initially evaluated with the modified SRP, selecting the point with the highest accumulated value. Then, its corresponding volume is iteratively decomposed by using a finer spatial grid. Experiments have shown that this method provides almost the same accuracy as the fine-grid search with a substantial reduction of functional evaluations.
