The article “Alignment of Binocular-Binaural Data Using a Moving Audio-Visual Target” received the “Best Paper Award” at the IEEE International Workshop on Multimedia Signal Processing (MMSP’13), Pula, Italy, September-October 2013. The paper is authored by Vasil Khalidov (IDIAP), Radu Horaud (INRIA) and Florence Forbes (INRIA).
The paper addresses the problem of of aligning visual and auditory data using a sensor that is composed of a camera-pair and a microphone-pair. The original contribution of the paper is a method for audio-visual data aligning through estimation of the 3D positions of the microphones in the visual centred coordinate frame defined by the stereo camera-pair.
