Effect of a Known Environment on the Estimation of Sound Source Distance

Document Thumbnail

The estimation of sound source distance has been a topic of research interest for a number of decades now. Humans are known to be good at localizing sound in the azimuth and elevation but are poor at estimating the sound source distance. This project looks at examining the effect of a known environment on the estimation of sound source distance. The project aims at initially testing the subjects perception of sound source in an unknown environment and then examining the effect of training the subject to the environment to see if training/learning the acoustics of the environment improves the estimation of the source distance.
