The ability of human beings to utilize acoustic cues to estimate the spatial location of a target is of great practical and research importance, and numerous of models have been proposed to mimic this binaural localizing approach. This research focuses on the 3-D space sound source localisation in a challenging environment with the humanoid binaural setup. In this talk, we discuss the main challenges in binaural localisation, and we are going to present several methods for the localisation in an unfamiliar environment.
