I've been working in Sound Source Localization and Tracking for over a year. However, I still need a good dataset that can provide not only real audio recordings but also information on the current sound source position while it moves, in order to validate my methods/algorithms. Unfortunately, I couldn't find anything close to that until now. I'm open to suggestions. Does anyone knows how to find this sort of database?
It's not my area and I wasn't/aren't even sure if you were searching for binaural recordings or data recoded using a mic array.
If binaural, I was originally going to suggest taking one of the Analog Devices SigmaDSP boards that have sound source simulation algorithms in the library and using it to create your own database. I realize that is pseudo-reverse algorithm-to-algorithm comparison - hardly what you are looking for. But, I thought that it might turn out to be both interesting and simple.
When I went to search for what algorithm that is used by ADI, I stumbled across this DCASE2020 challenge:
The challenge had quite the provided database. 14GB. The database is described in more detail here:
The challenge results are shown here:
...which compares a number of SSL challenge submissions and provides links to PDFs describing each submission.
That data/info seemed more useful than my original idea. Maybe it helps.
I very much appreciate your help. I'm actually working with mic array. This challenge and the dataset are both quite interesting.
