Auditory Velocity Information in a Balancing Task
Within the general context of auditory perception of ecological information a previously rather less studied aspect is the one of the convection of continuous dynamic physical attributes. The study focuses on velocity information in a scenario of interactive control, the one of balancing a virtual ball on a tiltable track. In a target reaching experiment control movements and performance times are measured and recorded under different conditions of auditory feedback in addition to a wide–screen graphical display. The presence and relevance of auditory perception of velocity information can be inferred from analysis of experimental results and conclusions can be drawn concerning the design of auditory feedback of ecological or rather abstract nature.
