A psychoacoustic auditory display for navigation is presented. Interactive sonification guides users to an invisible target location in two-dimensional space. Orthogonal spatial dimensions are mapped to perceptual auditory qualities that are orthogonal as well. The psychoacoustic auditory display could serve as an alternative or complement to conventional assistance systems for vehicle or airplane control, or for minimally invasive surgery. The approach is evaluated by an experiment, which… Expand
Three Orthogonal Dimensions for Psychoacoustic Sonification
TLDR
This study demonstrates how a location in three-dimensional space can be sonified unambiguously by the implementation of perceptually orthogonal psychoacoustic attributes in monophonic playback. Expand
Bring the Environment to Life: A Sonification Module for People with Visual Impairments to Improve Situation Awareness
TLDR
This work proposes a mobile system that combines object identification with a sonification interface that leverages popular computer vision methods to localize 18 static and dynamic object classes in real-time and shows that the object-to-sound mapping with auditory icons is intuitive. Expand
Psychoacoustical Signal Processing for Three-dimensional Sonification
TLDR
This study demonstrates how a location in three-dimensional space can be sonified unambiguously by the implementation of perceptually orthogonal psychoacoustic attributes in monophonic playback. Expand
Modulating Personal Audio to Convey Information
TLDR
A number of acoustic parameters of music that could be used to encode information are presented and a number of factors affecting the design of sonification systems employing them are discussed, with the goal of inciting discussion and further research into this potentially effective method of conveying information through sound.

Introduction to the special issue on interactive sonification
TLDR
Interactive Sonification is the specialized research topic concerned with the use of sound to portray data, but where there is a human being at the heart of an interactive control loop. Expand
A multi-modal approach to cognitive training and assistance in minimally invasive surgery
TLDR
This approach is the first that encompasses both training for improved mastery and reduction of cognitive challenges in MIS and promises better tailoring of surgical skills and assistance to the needs and the capabilities of the surgeons and, thus, ultimately, increased patient safety and health.

Tiltification — An Accessible App to Popularize Sonification
TLDR
It is argued that the distribution of sonification apps through mainstream channels is a contribution to establish sonification in the market and make it better known to users outside the scientific domain. Expand
The CURAT Sonification Game: Gamification for Remote Sonification Evaluation
TLDR
The multi-platform CURAT Sonification Game is introduced that allows us to evaluate and optimize the authors' psychoacoustic sonification design by a large population during long-term usage and receive feedback on the game and recommendations for future developments. Expand

TLDR
In a laboratory study it was tested if participants could differentiate between seven ranges of oxygen saturation using the proposed psychoacoustic sonification, and on average participants could identify in 84% of all cases the correct SpO2 range. Expand
Psychoacoustic Sonification as User Interface for Human-Machine Interaction
TLDR
This paper presents psychoacoustic sonification as an alternative interface for human-machine interaction, and presents exemplary use cases from various application areas where users can benefit from psychoacoustics. Expand
