This paper presents an advanced bio-inspired binaural sonar sensor capable of localizing reflectors in 3D space with a single reading. The technique makes use of broadband spectral cues in the received echoes only. Two artificial pinnae act as complex direction-dependent spectral filters on the echoes returning from the ensonified reflector. The “active headrelated transfer function” (AHRTF) is introduced to describe this spectral filtering as a function of the reflector angle, taking into… CONTINUE READING
