Abstract

This paper describes the design, development and acoustic verification of HeadZap, a semi-automated system for measuring head-related impulse responses (HRIRs) designed by AuSIM incorporated and modified by the NASA Ames Research Center Spatial Auditory Display Laboratory. HeadZap utilizes an array of twelve loudspeakers in order to measure 432 HRIRs at 10° intervals in both azimuth and elevation in a non-anechoic environment. Applications to real-time rendering using SLAB software and an audio-visual localization experiment are discussed.
