We focus on localizing the source of acoustic emissions within a compressed two-dimensional granular ensemble of photoelastic disks, having as main information the arrival times of the acoustic signal to 6 sensors located in the boundaries of the system. By estimating, thanks to the photoelasticity of the grains, the wave speed at every point of the structure, we are able to compute the arrival times from every point of the system to the sensors. A comparison between the arrival time differences between every set of computed values to those from the actual measurements allows finding the source of the acoustic emissions.
