In this paper, we propose a versatile acoustic source localization framework exploiting the self-steering capability of Blind Source Separation (BSS) algorithms. We provide a way to produce an acoustical map of the scene by computing the averaged directivity pattern of BSS demixing systems. Since BSS explicitly accounts for multiple sources in its signal propagation model, several simultaneously active sound sources can be located using this method. Moreover, the framework is suitable to any microphone array geometry, which allows application for multiple dimensions, in the near field as well as in the far field. Experiments demonstrate the efficiency of the proposed scheme in a reverberant environment for the localization of speech sources.
