This paper describes a system able to detect footstep locations. Through acoustic information retrieved from a wireless sensor network with small and relatively cheap microphone arrays. A dataset was recorded in order to validate the accuracy of the detection. Results on this dataset show that a best median of errors of 31cm per time moment are achievable, but results heavily depend on the positions of the microphones relative to the footsteps.
