Abstract

This paper for Mechatronics '98 describes the importance of the sense of hearing for immersive telepresence systems, and a fundamental approach to designing and implementing a binaural sensor system. The Strathclyde auditory system is then described including ideas drawn from the literature to define a binaural approach.A set of preliminary experiments is described which test the performance of the system in practice, as a basis for further development.
