#82 Do You Hear a Bump or a Hole? An Experiment on Temporal Aspects in Footsteps Recognition
Stefania Serafin, Luca Turchet, Rolf Nordahl
In this paper, we present a preliminary experiment whose goal is to assess the role of temporal aspects in sonically simulating the act of walking on a bump or a hole. In particular, we investigated whether the timing between heel and toe and the timing between footsteps affected perception of walking on unflat surfaces. Results show that it is possible to simulate a bump or a hole only by using temporal information.
