This paper proposes an iterative compensation method to deal with relative change of sound source location caused by rapid movements of a microphone array and a sound source. This method introduces a delay filter that has shifted and sampled sine functions. This paper presents a concept that applies both the error function of the adaptive algorithms to estimate two-dimensional direction-of-arrival and the coordinate system of a moving microphone array. This method directly estimates the relative directions of the microphone array to the sound source directions by minimizing the relative differences of arrival time among the observed signals, not by estimating the time difference of arrival (TDOA) between two observed signals. This method compensates the time delay of the observed signals simultaneously, and it has a feature to ensure that the output signals are in phase. Simulation results support effectiveness of the method.
