The final release of the datasets and software developed for the LOCATA Challenge could be downloaded via the following links:
- Evaluation and Development dataset with all ground truth data
- MATLAB framework to read datasets and run algorithms
- MATLAB framework for evaluation of participants’ submissions
- Documentation (PDF file)
Important: The originally released development database has been corrected. For Task 2, Rec. 2 has been removed and the voice activity labeling and source signals for Rec.3 have been corrected.
