GOAL: explore the feasibility of using audio information to improve distance perception, and investigate whether users’ egocentric distance perception can be calibrated. Additionally, investigate if the calibrated effect can be carried over long term.

Description: We designed an experiment in which users were immersed in a virtual room that had a series of lightbulbs along the depth of the room. A sound emanated from a distance and users were tasked with choosing the lightbulb that represented where they believed the sound source to have emanated from. This study allowed us to understand the perceptual learning and carryover effects associated with using reverberation time as a stimulus for users to perceive distance.
