Abstract

Using virtual environmental display system, an experimental system was constructed to measure the parallel alley and equi-distance alley in binaural auditory space. It was found that parallel alley and equi-distance alley in auditory space are not always straight in physical sense, and the forms of them depend on the distance from the subjects. Further, it was observed that parallel alley lies inside equi-distance alley. Employing sound intensity and binaural time differences as parameters, mathematical models were constructed to explain the auditory alleys. By simulation, the models successfully explained the experimental results obtained in virtual environmental system.
