Abstract: We describe a new method of blind source separation (BSS) on a microphone array combining subband independent component analysis (ICA) and beamforming. The proposed array system consists of the following three sections: (1) subband-ICA-based BSS section with direction-of-arrival (DOA) estimation; (2) null beamforming section based on the estimated DOA information; and (3) integration of (1) and (2) based on the algorithm diversity. Using this technique, we can resolve the low-convergence problem through optimization in ICA. The results of the signal separation experiments reveal that a noise reduction rate (NRR) of about 18 dB is obtained under the nonreverberant condition, and NRR of 8 dB and 6 dB are obtained in the case that the reverberation times are 150 msec and 300 msec. These performances are superior to those of both simple ICA-based BSS and simple beamforming method
