Abstract : Although most sound localization research has examined the ability of listeners to determine the location of single sounds presented in quiet (typically anechoic) environments, most real-work listening situations are more complex, with multiple simultaneous sounds. Similarly, many applications of spatialized auditory (3D audio) displays are likely to require the presentation of complex auditory virtual environments, which must be reliably perceived and interpreted. Moreover, these displays must function properly even in real-world environments that are often much harsher than the laboratory environments in which they were first developed (e.g., the Warfighter in a battlespace).
