• Affect in Human-Robot Interaction 

      Arkin, Ronald C.; Moshkina, Lilia (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014)
      More and more, robots are expected to interact with humans in a social, easily understandable manner, which presupposes effective use of robot affect. This chapter provides a brief overview of research advances into this ...
    • Auditory Evidence Grids 

      Martinson, Eric; Schultz, Alan (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006)
      Sound source localization on a mobile robot can be a difficult task due to a variety of problems inherent to a real environment, including robot ego-noise, echoes, and the transient nature of ambient noise. As a result, ...
    • Auditory Perspective Taking 

      Martinson, Eric; Brock, Derek (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006)
      Auditory perspective taking is imagining being in another’s place, and predicting what they are able to hear and how it will affect their general comprehension. From this knowledge of another’s auditory perspective, a ...
    • Bulk nanocomposite magnets produced by dynamic shock compaction 

      Chen, K. H.; Jin, Z. Q.; Li, Jing; Kennedy, G.; Wang, Z. L. (Zhong Lin); Thadhani, Naresh N.; Zeng, Hao; Cheng, S.-F.; Liu, J. Ping (Georgia Institute of TechnologyAmerican Institute of Physics, 2004-07-15)
      Exchange-coupled R₂Fe₁₄B/α -Fe (R = Nd or Pr) nanocomposite bulk magnets with nearly full density have been successfully produced by shock compaction of melt-spun powders. X-ray diffraction and transmission electronic ...
    • Collaboratively Identifying and Referring to Sounds with Words and Phrases 

      Brock, Derek; Gaumond, Charles F.; Wasylyshyn, Christina; McClimens, Brian (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2014-06)
      Machine classification of underwater sounds remains an important focus of U.S. Naval research due to physical and environmental factors that increase false alarm rates. Human operators tend to be reliably better at this ...
    • Evaluating listeners’ attention to and comprehension of serialy interleaved, rate-accelerated speech 

      Brock, Derek; Peres, S. Camille; McClimens, Brian (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      In Navy command operations, individual watchstanders must often concurrently monitor two or more channels of spoken communications at a time, which in turn can undermine information awareness and decision performance. ...
    • Grain size dependence of magnetic properties in shock synthesized bulk Pr₂Fe₁₄B/α-Fe nanocomposites 

      Jin, Z. Q.; Thadhani, Naresh N.; McGill, M.; Li, Jing; Ding, Yong; Wang, Z. L. (Zhong Lin); Zeng, Hao; Chen, M.; Cheng, S.-F.; Liu, J. Ping (Georgia Institute of TechnologyAmerican Institute of Physics, 2004-09-15)
      The structural and magnetic properties of the melt-spun Pr₂Fe₁₄B/α-Fe nanocomposite powders consolidated via shock-wave compression and subjected to postshock thermal treatment were investigated. Shock compression results ...
    • Robotic Discovery of the Auditory Scene 

      Martinson, Eric; Schultz, Alan (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007)
      In this work, we describe an autonomous mobile robotic system for finding and investigating ambient noise sources in the environment. Motivated by the large negative effect of ambient noise sources on robot audition, ...
    • Ultra-high Energy Cosmic Rays from Blazars 

      Dermer, Charles (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-12-10)
      Blazar astronomy is rapidly progressing thanks in large part to the successes of the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope and the ground-based gamma-ray telescopes. More than 1000 active galaxies have been detected at GeV ...
