There is an increased awareness of how the quality of the acoustic environment impacts the lives of human beings. Several studies have shown that sound pollution has adverse effects on many populations, from infants to adults, in different environments and workplaces. Hospitals are susceptible environments that require special attention since...

Inside the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), exposure to loud sounds such as acoustic medical alarms can have adverse effects on neonates, parents, and medical staff. With the aim of having an accurate overview of which and how often acoustic medical alarms occur, this paper presents a simple signal processing-based approach for detecting...

Good sleep is conducive to the recovery process of hospital patients - and yet, in many wards, sleep duration and quality can often be suboptimal, in part due to modifiable hospital-related sounds and noises. At the neurological ward of the Reinier de Graaf hospital in Delft, the Netherlands, we developed and evaluated a prototype information...

We present a hybrid approach to individualized head-related transfer function (HRTF) modeling which requires only 3 anthropometric measurements and an image of the pinna. A prediction algorithm based on variational autoencoders synthesizes a pinna-related response from the image, which is used to filter a measured head-andtorso response. The...

While previous research on spatial sound perception investigated the physical mechanisms producing the most relevant elevation cues, how spectral notches are generated and related to the individual morphology of the human pinna is still a topic of debate. Correctly modeling these important elevation cues, and in particular the lowest...

Previous research stresses the importance of Head-Related Transfer Function (HRTF) individualization approaches for accurately locating sound sources in virtual 3D spaces. However, in the realm of interactive experiences, methods for assessing whether individualized HRTFs bring a benefit to the player experience are rarely investigated. Methods...
