An acoustic vector sensor array consists of multiple sound pressure microphones and particle velocity sensors. A pressure microphone usually has an omni-directional response, yet a particle velocity sensor is directional and usually has a response pattern as a figure of eight. Currently, acoustic vector sensor arrays are under investigation for far field source localization and visualization. One of the major practical issues in these applications, however, is to determine the accurate position, orientation and complex (phase and amplitude) sensitivity of each sensor within the array. In this study, a new calibration method is verified with experiments. The method determines all the crucial parameters based on a limited number of measurements with a reference sensor and multiple sound sources located at known locations. The experiments are performed in an anechoic room. The results are promising. © 2010 Acoustical Society of America.
