Acoustics, Signal Processing, and Immersive Reality (ASPIRe) Lab

The ASPIRe Lab focuses on the development of signal processing algorithms for immersive audio.  Our primary interest is the industrial application of immersive reality with particular emphasis on immersive audio. We do fundamental work in Acoustics and Signal Processing with applications to virtual product prototyping, digital and virtual twin technologies, and condition-based maintenance.  Other major work includes the study of the effectiveness of electric vehicle and hybrid-electric vehicle safety/warning sounds
