      This paper introduces kernel regression mapping sonifica- tion (KRMS) for optimized mappings between data features and the parameter space of Parameter Mapping Sonification. Kernel regression allows to map data spaces to ...
    • Learnabiltiy of Sound Cues for Environmental Features: Auditory Icons, Earcons, Spearcons, and Speech 

      Dingler, Tilman; Lindsay, Jeffrey; Walker, Bruce N. (International Community for Auditory Display, 2008-06)
      Awareness of features in our environment is essential for many daily activities. While often awareness of such features comes from vision, this modality is sometimes unavailable or undesirable. In these instances, auditory ...
    • Sound Design for Navigation in Topophonies 

      Cahen, Roland (International Community for Auditory Display, 2008-06)
      This paper attempts to develop concepts of multimodal objects made out of the interaction between space and sound though motion. The present paper is mostly descriptive and tries to gather experiences in order to delimit ...
    • On the Use of Sound for Representing Geometrical Information of Virtual Objects 

      Shelley, Simon; Alonso, Miguel; Hermes, Dik; Kohlrausch, Armin (International Community for Auditory Display, 2008-06)
      This study is concerned with the use of sound in a multimodal interface that is currently being developed as an aid for product design. By using this interface, the designer is able to physically interact with a virtual ...
