    • A perspective on the limited potential for simultaneity in auditory display 

      Gossmann, Joachim (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      The auditory environment is frequently described as a juxtaposition between an array of pre-disclosed auditory streams and a process of attentional selection. The orientation of attentional selection toward environmental ...
    • Revisiting pulse rate, frequency and perceived urgency: have relationships changed and why? 

      Gonzalez, Christian; Lewis, Bridget A.; Baldwin, Carryl L. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      As the presence of technology within vehicles increases, alerts and warnings need to not only be salient, but also correctly mapped to events of varying time sensitivity. The goal of this research was to reevaluate key ...
