SICSA research project - Yolanda Vazquez-Alvarez

Yolanda Vazquez-Alvarez of the School of Computing Science at the University of Glasgow, is designing Spatial Audio Interfaces for Mobile Devices: Supporting Multitasking and Context Information. As the functionality of mobile devices increases, users perform more tasks when mobile and increasingly require eyes-free multitasking. Many tasks performed on mobile devices are also related to context information such as finding a restaurant on a mobile service search application. Thus, future audio interfaces will have to support multiple audio streams to enable multitasking and potentially some means of audio spatialisation to represent context, i.e. location-based information. The aim of Yolanda’s project is to evaluate different techniques for simultaneously presenting multiple audio streams when mobile, including 3D audio techniques, “to better understand the affordances of these different delivery mechanisms.”
