We propose a time-domain multiple sound source localization (SSL) method based on Bayesian inference. This method is specifically designed to run on the stochastic machines (SM) that we are currently developing to perform efficient low-level sensor signal processing with ultra-low power consumption. The proposed SSL method is divided into two main parts. First, a probabilistic model is run on 50 very short time frames (3. 75ms each) of multichannel recorded signals. Second, the results obtained on the different frames are fused to obtain a final localization map. Using the system in a supervised way allows to extract estimated source locations by selecting as many maxima as there are sources in the room. We explain how this method is implemented on a SM. Experiments are presented to illustrate the performance and robustness of the resulting system.
