  • Investigation of ITD Symmetry in Measured HRIRs 

    Genovese, Andrea F.; Juras, Jordan; Miller, Chris; Roginska, Agnieszka (International Community on Auditory Display, 2016-07)
    The Interaural Time Difference is one of the primary localization cues for 3D sound. However, due to differences in head and ear anthropometry across the population, ITDs related to a sound source at a given location around ...
  • 3D Time-Based Aural Data Representation Using D4 Library’s Layer Based Amplitude Panning Algorithm 

    Bukvic, Ivica Ico (International Community on Auditory Display, 2016-07)
    The following paper introduces a new Layer Based Amplitude Panning algorithm and supporting D4 library of rapid prototyping tools for the 3D time-based data representation using sound. The algorithm is designed to scale ...
  • Musical Robots For Children With ASD Using A Client-Server Architecture

    People with Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD) are known to have difficulty recognizing and expressing emotions, which affects their social integration. Leveraging the recent advances in interactive robot and music therapy ...
  • Listen To Your Drive: Sonification Architecture and Strategies for Driver State and Performance 

    Landry, Steven; Tascarella, David; Jeon, Myounghoon; FakhrHosseini, S. Maryam (International Community on Auditory Display, 2016-07)
    Driving is mainly a visual task, leaving other sensory channels open for additional information communication. As the level of automation increases in vehicles, monitoring the state and performance of the driver and vehicle ...
  • LifeMusic: Reflection Of Life Memories By Data Sonification 

    Khan, Ridwan A.; Avvari, Ram K.; Wiykovics, Katherine; Ranay, Pooja; Jeon, Myounghoon (International Community on Auditory Display, 2016-07)
    Memorable life events are important to form the present selfimage. Looking back on these memories provides an opportunity to ruminate meaning of life and envision future. Integrating the life-log concept and auditory graphs, ...
  • Implementation and Evaluation of 10.2 channel Microphone for UHDTV Audio 

    Jang, Daeyoung; Yoo, Jae-hyoun; Lee, Tae Jin (International Community on Auditory Display, 2016-07)
    As broadcasting environments change rapidly to digital, user requirements for next-generation services that surpass the current HDTV service quality become more demanding. The next-generation of broadcasting services will ...
  • Tuning Into The Task: Sonic Environmental Cues And Mental Task Switching 

    Gifford, Toby (International Community on Auditory Display, 2016-07)
    This position paper suggests a novel approach to enhancing productivity for professionals whose core business is deep thinking, by manipulation of the sonic environment. Approaching the issue from the perspective of ...
  • Satellite Gamelan: Microtonal Sonification Using a Large Consort of Mobile Phones 

    Schiemer, Greg (International Community on Auditory Display, 2016-07)
    This paper describes an approach to sonification based on an iPhone app created for multiple users to explore a microtonal scale generated from harmonics using the combination product set method devised by tuning theorist ...
  • A Task-Analysis-Based Evaluation of Sonification Designs for Two sEMG Tasks 

    Peres, S. Camille; Verona, Daniel (International Community on Auditory Display, 2016-07)
    This paper presents a brief description of surface electromyography (sEMG), what it can be used for, as well as some of the problems associated with visual displays of sEMG data. Sonifications of sEMG data have shown ...
  • Accessible Spectrum Analyser 

    Martin, Fiore; Metatla, Oussama; Bryan-Kinns, Nick; Stockman, Tony (International Community on Auditory Display, 2016-07)
    This paper presents the Accessible Spectrum Analyser (ASA) developed as part of the DePic project (Design Patterns for Inclusive collaboration) at Queen Mary University of London. The ASA uses sonification to provide an ...
  • Designing Informative Sound to Enhance A Simple Decision Task 

    Nesbitt, Keith; Williams, Paul; Ng, Patrick; Blackmore, Karen; Eidels, Ami (International Community on Auditory Display, 2016-07)
    In this paper we examined the role of informative sound in a simple decision-making game task. A within-subject experiment with 48 participants measured the response time, success rate and number of timeouts of the players ...
  • Word Spotting in a Multichannel Virtual Auditory Display at Normal and Accelerated Rates of Speech 

    Brock, Derek; Wasylyshyn, Christina; McClimens, Brian (International Community on Auditory Display, 2016-07)
    The demands of concurrent radio communications in Navy shipboard command centers contribute to the problem of operator information overload and impede personnel optimization goals for new platforms. Motivations for serializing ...
  • Response Techniques and Auditory Localization Accuracy 

    Iyer, Nandini; Thompson, Eric R.; Simpson, Brian D. (International Community on Auditory Display, 2016-07)
    Auditory cues, when coupled with visual objects, have lead to reduced response times in visual search tasks, suggesting that adding auditory information can potentially aid Air Force operators in complex scenarios. These ...
  • Virtual-Audio Aided Visual Search on a Desktop Display 

    Rothwell, Clayton; Romigh, Griffin D.; Simpson, Brian D. (International Community on Auditory Display, 2016-07)
    As visual display complexity grows, visual cues and alerts may become less salient and therefore less effective. Although the auditory system's resolution is rather coarse relative to the visual system, there is some ...
  • Sonifying for Public Engagement: A Context-Based Model for Sonifying Air Pollution Data 

    St Pierre, Marc; Droumeva, Milena (International Community on Auditory Display, 2016-07)
    In this paper we report on a unique and contextually-sensitive approach to sonification of a subset of climate data: urban air pollution for four Canadian cities. Similarly to other datadriven models for sonification and ...
  • In Ear to Out There: A Magnitude Based Parameterization Scheme for Sound Source Externalization 

    Romigh, Griffin D.; Simpson, Brian D.; Iyer, Nandini (International Community on Auditory Display, 2016-07)
