    • Investigation of system latency detection threshold of virtual auditory display 

      Yairi, S.; Iwaya, Y.; Suzuki, Y. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      It is important in a virtual auditory display (VAD) system to reproduce not only static sound information, but also dynamic variation of sound. Thus, to achieve a highly precise virtual auditory display system, the system ...
    • Investigation of the effect of impedance on azimuth cues derived from spherical head models 

      Treeby, B. E.; Paurobally, R. M.; Pan, J. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      Recent implementations of virtual sound using head related transfer functions often include an analytical low frequency diffraction model to reproduce stable azimuth cues which are independent of the quality and accuracy ...
    • Listening to program slices 

      Berman, L. I.; Gallagher, K. B. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      Comprehending a computer program can be a daunting task. There is much to understand, including the interaction among different portions of the code. Program slicing can help one to understand this interaction. Because ...
    • A malleable device with applications to sonification-based data exploration 

      Milczynski, M.; Hermann, T.; Bovermann, T.; Ritter, H. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      This article introduces a novel human computer interaction device, developed in the scope of a Master's Thesis. The device allows continuous localized interaction by providing a malleable interaction surface. Diverse ...
