  • CardioSounds: A portable system to sonify ECG rhythm disturbances in real-time 

    Aldana Blanco, Andrea Lorena; Grautoff, Steffen; Hermann, Thomas (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2018-06)
    CardioSounds is a portable system that allows users to measure and sonify their electrocardiogram signal in real-time. The ECG signal is acquired using the hardware platform BITalino and subsequently analyzed and sonified ...
  • Augmentation of an institute’s kitchen: An ambient auditory display of electric power consumption 

    Groß-Vogt, Katharina; Weger, Marian; Höldrich, Robert; Hermann, Thomas; Bovermann, Till; Reichmann, Stefan (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2018-06)
    Efficient feedback on energy consumption is regarded as one step towards a more sustainable lifestyle. Sonification is very apt to convey such information continuously in an ambient and effective way. This paper presents ...
  • Wave Space Sonification 

    Hermann, Thomas (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2018-06)
    This paper introducesWave Space Sonification (WSS), a novel class of sonification techniques for time- (or space-) indexed data. WSS doesn’t fall into the classes of Audification, Parameter- Mapping Sonification or ...
  • Recognizability and perceived urgency of bicycle bells 

    Frohmann, Lisa; Weger, Marian; Höldrich, Robert (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2018-06)
    Raising awareness about how alarm sounds are perceived and evaluated by an individual in traffic scenery is important for developing new alarm designs, as well as for improving existing ones. Bearing a positive contribution ...
  • Plausible auditory augmentation of physical interaction 

    Weger, Marian; Herrmann, Thomas; Höldrich, Robert (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2018-06)
    Interactions with physical objects usually evoke sounds, i.e., auditory feedback that depends on the interacting objects (e.g., table, hand, or pencil) and interaction type (e.g., tapping or scratching). The continuous ...
