A new XR model for sound localisation in reverberation
Extended Reality (XR) refers to the technology which allows users to become immersed in a 3D environment populated with virtual objects which they can perceive through their senses (typically, sight, hearing and touch). XR is generally used as an umbrella term for Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality. XR is used in countless sectors, – from manufacturing, training, and education to health and entertainment. The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) project XReverb, focused on auditory XR, will investigate how people perceive spatial reverberation to build more efficient rendering methods which enable high-quality spatial audio on XR. Specifically, the project will design a new reverberation encoding technique based on a variable order Ambisonics framework, and an auditory model for sound localisation in reverberation.
