PhD Project

Development of a new approach for simplified measurements of individual HRTF data.

Based on recent developments in the fields of acoustic measurement, processing and especially interpolation of HRTF data, an improved and efficient measurement system is developed. A central aspect involves identifying perceptually crucial components of HRTF measurement, allowing for informed simplifications without compromising acoustic quality.
