      Roeber, N.; Masuch, M. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2004-07)
      The visual and the auditory field of perception respond on different input signals from our environment. Thus, interacting with worlds solely trough sound is a very challenging task. This paper discusses methods and ...

      Martin, R.; McAnally, K. I.; Watt, J. P. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2004-07)
      One issue that arises in relation to the use of three-dimensional audio displays as a means of conveying spatial information to human operators concerns the ability of operators to track the locations of multiple sounds. ...
    • Individual differences, cognitive abilities, and the interpretation of auditory graphs 

      Walker, Bruce N.; Mauney, Lisa M. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2004-07)
      Auditory graphs exploit pattern recognition in the auditory system, but questions remain about the relationship between cognitive abilities, demographics, and sonification interpretation. Subjects completed a magnitude ...

      Brazil, E.; Fernstroem, M. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2004-07)
      In this paper, we describe an interactive environment designed and created within a museum context. ``Re-Tracing the Past: Exploring objects, stories and mysteries'' allowed visitors to explore and investigate artefacts ...
    • Mobile spatial audio communication system 

      Kan, A.; Pope, G.; Jin, C.; van Schaik, A. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2004-07)
      As a first step in studying the application of the global positioning system (GPS) in a spatial audio communication system, an experimental platform was developed using commercial, off-the-shelf (COTS) GPS units: a Garmin ...
    • Comparing and reusing visualisation and sonification designs using the ms-taxonomy 

      Nesbitt, K. V. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2004-07)
      Comparing designs of sonifications is difficult enough but comparing a visual display with a sound display is much harder. Yet the designer of multi-sensory displays would like to make sensible decisions about when to use ...
    • Auditory navigation performance is affected by waypoint capture radius 

      Lindsay, Jeff.; Walker, Bruce N. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2004-07)
      Non-speech audio navigation systems can be very effective mobility aids for persons with either temporary or permanent vision loss. Sound design has certainly been shown to be important in such devices [e.g. 1]. In this ...
    • Creating functional and livable soundscapes for peripheral monitoring of dynamic data 

      Mauney, Bradley S.; Walker, Bruce N. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2004-07)
      Sonifications must be studied in order to match listener expectancies about data representation in the form of sound. In this study, a system was designed and implemented for dynamically rendering sonifications of simulated ...
    • Connecting virtual sound and physical space in audio-augmented environments 

      Gossmann, J. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2004-07)
      This paper describes strategies to create multimodal coherences between sound and space in Audio-Augmented Environments. Visitors to AAEs wear motion-tracked wireless headphones displaying a location-aware, adaptive audio ...
    • Capture and recreation of higher order 3D sound fields via reciprocity 

      Li, Z.; Duraiswami, R.; Gumerov, N. A. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2004-07)
      We propose a unified and simple approach for capturing and recreating 3D sound fields by exploring the reciprocity principle that is satisfied between the two processes. Our approach makes the system easy to build, and ...
    • Atmospherics/Weather works: A multi-channel storm sonification project 

      Polli, A. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2004-07)

    • Cultivating design patterns for auditory displays 

      Barrass, S.; Adcock, M. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2004-07)
      Auditory Displays are quite well known in the research community, but very little of this experience is being transferred to product designers. The method of Design Patterns is well known to a number of design domains and ...
