Application of Acoustics for Underwater ROVs

CCRMA-Stanford University - Thu, 04/23/2015 - 17:36
Date:  Wed, 04/29/2015 - 5:15pm - 7:00pm Location:  CCRMA Classroom Event Type:  Colloquium

Signaling and navigating in the underwater world presents challenges for traditional approaches such as radio waves and light. Both are readily absorbed in water. Light also tends to scatter and reflect over short distances. Sound waves are much more adaptable to use in this world. While they also present challenges – especially absorption and reflection – they can be used effectively over much greater distances in the order of kilometers.

Abstract "Continuous Auditory Feedback for Sensorimotor Learning"

Notre système sensorimoteur a développé une relation particulière entre nos actions et le retour sonore qui en découle. Les systèmes de captation gestuelle et les technologies audio permettent de manipuler ce retour sonore par la sonification interactive du mouvement. Nous explorons dans divers cadres expérimentaux la contribution de la sonification à l'apprentissage moteur dans les systèmes interactifs.

Tout d'abord, nous montrons que le système auditif intègre des indices acoustiques issus du mouvement pour le contrôle moteur. Des représentations de l'espace émergent de ces indices et sont transformées en commandes motrices.

Ensuite, nous mesurons qu'un retour sonore continu permet d'améliorer significativement la performance à une tâche de poursuite. Nous observons également que la sonification du mouvement de l'utilisateur augmente l'énergie contenue dans le geste et prévient la dépendance au retour sonore.

Enfin, nous présentons le concept de tâche sonore dans lequel la cible est présentée et s'exprime sous forme de paramètres sonores à reproduire. Les résultats montrent qu'une adaptation motrice peut être provoquée par des indices acoustiques seuls. Ce travail permet de dégager des principes importants du design de l'interaction geste-son, et présente des applications originales comme des scénarios interactifs pour la rééducation.
