Overview

Code for generating audio representing echoes from objects in a virtual auditory space, for use in listening experiments in the study of human echolocation ability. Implemented in MATLAB, using the Edge Diffraction Toolbox from Peter Svensson.

The subproject Human Echolocation WebApp contains a simple web application implemented in Java servlets, integrated with the MATLAB code via the MATLAB Compiler Runtime.
