【研究室の概要】

We are interested on sound as a vehicle to transmit information between humans and machines. In our research we focus mainly on spatial sound, applied psychoacoustics, and applied phonetics.

 

【研究室の具体的なテーマ】

Spatial sound

The visual modality of perception is saturated with information coming from gadgets we use in daily basis; we want to find ways to convey part of that information via spatial sound using loudspeakers or headphones. We are particularly interested on synthesizing auditory distance in virtual environments and multi-sensory interfaces.

Applied psychoacoustics

In our group, we see reality as an active interpretation of stimuli received by the brain, its processing limits sometimes are exceeded by hardware capabilities, this mismatch brings opportunities for new interfaces explored in our lab, such as near ultrasound communication, bass enhacements using vibration motors, etc.

Applied phonetics

In collaboration research, we are studying effects of noise on speech, multilingualism, articulation and phonation phenomena. Speech technologies are being introduced as an interaction method for machines. Understanding how speech is produced in different setups is of paramount importance for such technology.

 

【研究室のPR】

We use sound regularly to communicate with others, yet our understanding of it is so little that there may be many other opportunities for new technologies waiting to be discovered. This is a difficult task that requires common efforts. We are always looking forward for collaboration research; contact us if you are interested. Thanks!
