Using Playstation Eye's microphone array on Beaglebone Blue


So I am trying to use Playstation Eye’s microphone array to perform some sound source localization tasks on my beaglebone blue.

I am using an ubuntu image from:

And I am using a software called HARK:

I suspect Playstation Eye is not working because when I try to use arecord command like:

arecord -D plughw:CARD=CameraB409241,DEV=0 -d 10 /tmp/test-mic.wav

to record a .wav file with playstation eye plugged in, it creates a .wav file (whose size is fixed, I remember it’s 44 bytes)and never ends.

When I run the command with a regular webcam plugged in, it exits normally with the audio file saved.

I am wondering if anyone else has worked on similar topic before.

Thank you!


You might have better luck on an ALSA list.
