From the Contents: An Introduction to Binaural Processing -- The Auditory-modeling Toolbox -- Acquisition and Representation of Head-related Transfer Functions -- Binaural Analysis of Complex Listening Environments -- Binaural Scene Analysis with Multi-dimensional Statistical Filters -- Extracting Room and Source-distance Information from Binaural.-Binaural Evaluation of Auditory Scenes Using Head Movements -- Binaural Systems in Robotics -- Binaural Assessment of Multi-channel Reproduction -- Optimization and Assessment of Binaural Algorithms for Hearing.
This book reports on the application of advanced models of the human binaural hearing system in modern technology, among others, in the following areas: binaural analysis of aural scenes, binaural de-reverberation, binaural quality assessment of audio channels, loudspeakers and performance spaces, binaural perceptual coding, binaural processing in hearing aids and cochlea implants, binaural systems in robots, binaural/tactile human-machine interfaces, speech-intelligibility prediction in rooms and/or multi-speaker scenarios. An introduction to binaural modeling and an outlook to the future are provided. Further, the book features a MATLAB toolbox to enable readers to construct their own dedicated binaural models on demand.
