Perception, Evaluation, Cognition
Cognitive Performance: Background Noise
Investigation of perceptual localization capabilities of human under building acoustical conditions during background noise from outdoor moving sound sources. Specifically, the aim of such listening experiment is to validate the real-time building acoustic rendering framework for facade sound insulation based on VBA framework (Virtual Building Acoustics Framework)
Effects of Pass-by Outdoor Sources
Cognitive performance during background noise from neighboring private offices to evaluate how it affect cognitive performance in terms of short-term memory. The listen experiment is designed to investigate the effect patterns of the different background sounds under different building acoustics conditions for indoor scenes and compare results with that of real-life laboratory listening experiments. With this, it is to validate VBA as an audio-visual virtual reality framework as a potential tool for exploring sound effects of building characteristics for different real life activities.
