Abstract

A game was created to analyze the subject’s head rotation to give accurate data about the process of localizing a sound in a 360-degree sphere in a VR gameplay. In this game, the subjects are asked to locate a series of sounds that are randomly placed in a sphere around their heads using generalized HRTFs. The only instruction given to the subjects is that they need to locate the sounds as fast and accurate as possible by looking at where the sound was and then pressing a trigger. To test this tool, 16 subjects were used. It showed that the average time that it took the subjects to locate the sound was 3.7±1.8 seconds. The average error in accuracy was 15.4 degrees. The average time that it took the subjects to start moving their head was 0.2 seconds approximately. The average rotation speed achieved its maximum value at 0.8 seconds and the average speed at this point was approximately 102 degrees per second.
