Wearable computing systems for auditory display

Supervisor: Dr Rebecca Stewart

Research group(s): Centre for Digital Music

Auditory display is the audio analogue of visual display. It uses sound to communicate information and may be used in a multimodal human-computer interface. This project will look at how auditory display can be implemented for wearable computing. It will combine audio signal processing, possibly incorporating spatial audio, and may look at other modes of interaction such as haptic feedback. It can also extend to exploring new designs of worn actuators (speakers) beyond current in-ear solutions and new ways of conveying complex haptic information in a body-centric system.
