    • Detection and localization of speech in the presence of competing speech signals 

      Simpson, B. D.; Brungart, D. S.; Iyer, N.; Gilkey, R. H.; Hamil, J. T. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      Auditory displays are often used to convey important information in complex operational environments. One problem with these displays is that potentially critical information can be corrupted or lost when multiple warning ...

    • The effect of auditory alerts on the performance of concurrent tasks 

      Acker-Mills, B. E. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      This paper reports results from an on-going study of the effectiveness of different kinds of aviation-based auditory alerts and the alerts' effect on the performance of other, unrelated tasks. Participants engage in tracking, ...
    • Exploring the utility of giving robots auditory perspective-taking abilities 

      Brock, D.; Martinson, E. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      This paper reports on work in progress to develop a computational auditory perspective taking system for a robot. Auditory perspective taking is construed as the ability to reason about inferred or posited factors that ...
