The DREGON dataset

Martin Strauss, Pol Mordel, Victor Miguet and myself just released the DREGON dataset. DREGON stands for DRone EGonoise and localizatiON. It consists in sounds recorded with an 8-channel microphone array embedded into a quadrotor UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle). The recordings are annotated with the precise 3D position of the sound source relative to the drone as well as additional internal characteristics of the drone state such as motor speed and intertial measurements. It aims at promoting research in UAV-embedded sound source localization, notably for the application of semi-autonomous search-and-rescue with drones.
