PSL to develop speaker positioning system

Tuesday, October 14th, 2008

PSL has received a contract from University of Louisville to develop a speaker positioning system for studying the response of human subjects to changes in the direction of sound. The project is for Dr. Fred Wightman and Dr. Pavel Zahorik. The system will be capable of positioning a speaker at nearly any direction around the subject under computer control in an anechoic chamber.
