SoundDelta: A Study of Audio Augmented Reality Using WiFi-Distributed Ambisonic Cell Rendering
SoundDelta is an art/research project that produced several public audio augmented reality art-works.These spatial soundscapes were comprised of virtual sound sources located in a designated terrain such as a town square. Pedestrian users experienced the result as interactive binaural audio by walking through the augmented terrain, using headphones and the SoundDelta mobile device. SoundDelta uses a distributed "Ambisoniccell" architecture that scales efficiently for many users. A server renders Ambisonic audio for fixed user positions, which is streamed wirelessly to mobile users that render a custom, individualized binaural mix for their present position. A spatial cognition mapping experiment was conducted to validate the soundscape perception and compare with an individual rendering system.
