With the development of artificial intelligence voice technology, array signal processing technology has been widely used in intelligent human–computer interaction. In this field, the sound source localization technology of the microphone array system is also one of the key technologies in the composition of intelligent systems, and it is also a research hotspot technology, which is of great significance for improving human–computer interaction ability. In this paper, the microphone array technology is used to demonstrate and improve the sound source localization of indoor speech signals. A spatial distributed microphone array localization algorithm is proposed to improve the accuracy of the indoor voice source signal localization in the presence of indoor noise and reverberation.
