The study and implementation of microphone arrays originated over 20 years ago. Thanks to the research and experimental developments pursued to the present day, the field has matured to the point that array-based technology now has immediate applicability to a number of current systems and a vast potential for the improvement of existing products and the creation of future devices. This text is organized into four sections which roughly follow the major areas of microphone array research today. Parts I and II are primarily theoretical in nature and emphasize the use of microphone arrays for speech enhancement and source localization, respectively. Part III presents a number of specific applications of array-based technology. Part IV addresses some open questions and explores the future of the field. The result is a text that will be of utility to a large audience, from the student or practicing engineer just approaching the field to the advanced researcher with multi-channel signal processing experience.
