Mixed Reality Auditory Perception

The ideal goal of mixed reality (MR) is to interleave virtual and physical reality in a way such that it is imperceptible to a human observer. While MR is still challenging in the visual domain, recent developments in spatial audio bring MR into the reach. In this study, the perceptual cues for successful auditory MR scenarios are investigated. The projects involve both spatial audio signal processing techniques, virtual acoustics, and psychoacoustic testing.
