Navigation with Auditory Cues in a Virtual Environment
April/June 2005 (vol. 12 no. 2)
pp. 80-86
Tapio Lokki, Helsinki University of Technology, Finland

We use 3D sound to help navigate an immersive virtual environment and report results of user tests obtained with a game-like application. The results show that auditory cues help in navigation, and auditory navigation is possible even without any visual feedback. The best performance is obtained in audio visual navigation where auditory cues indicate the approximate direction and visual cues help in the final approach.
Index Terms:
Auditory navigation, audio-visual, virtual environments, 3D sound
