InterSense Head-tracking Technology added to AuSIM
Simulation Systems for Research and Development
The Inclusion of Trackers Creates Fully Turnkey Simulation
Mountain View, California Ė November 27, 2002
AuSIM announced today the enhancement of its family of GoldSeriestm audio
simulation systems with the addition of head-orientation trackers from InterSense. AuSIM
selected InterSense as its standard provider of head-orientation trackers
based on the quality and innovation of the products and their applicability
to a wide variety of customer requirements.
AuSIMís audio servers synthesize a sound space in a completely natural
and realistic way, using physical modeling and empirical data.
Trackers are instruments that sense the motion and orientation of the
userís head. Motion tracking facilitates the interaction between
the listener and the simulated audio environment by controlling the
relative position of sound in the listenerís headphones.
"Head-motion is a principal method for listeners to naturally discriminate
sound. InterSense's products provide our systems with stable,
sourceless, and real-time orientation data," according to William L.
Chapin, President of AuSIM. "This data is critical for our AuSIM3Dô
engine, which is optimized to react to listener movement. The
inclusion of the tracker makes our GoldSeries servers truly 'turn-key'
InterSenseís InertiaCube2 tracker, which provides three degrees of
freedom tracking (3-DOF) will become part of AuSIM's GoldMinertm
and RollingNuggettm development systems. InterSense's
InterTrax2 will round out the reCREatetm system, a direct
replacement for older Crystal River Engineering Acoustetron II systems.
"AuSIM has integrated InterSenseís standard tracker libraries into their
3D Audio product offering, providing native support for our full tracking
product line," states Dean Wormell, Manager of Strategic Partnerships
for InterSense. "The joint product offering from AuSIM is initially
bundled with our 3-DOF products, but can also configured to work with
our 6-DOF product line for additional applications in simulation, training
and mobile field operations."
Demonstrations of AuSIMís portable RollingNugget system will be shown
in the InterSense booth (# 984) at the Interservice/Industry Training,
Simulation and Education Conference in the Orlando County Convention Center,
Orlando, Florida, from December 2-5, 2002.
