Biography

As of May 2016, Jens Ahrens is with Chalmers University of Technology.


Jens Ahrens received a Diploma in Electrical Engineering/Sound Engineering (equivalent to Master of Science) from Graz University of Technology and University of Music and Dramatic Arts Graz, Austria, in 2005 and the Doctoral Degree (Dr.-Ing.) from University of Technology Berlin, Germany, in 2010 both with distinction. From 2006 to 2011 he was member of the Audio Technology Group at the Quality and Usability Lab where he worked on the topic of sound field synthesis. From 2011 to 2013 he was a Postdoctoral Researcher at Microsoft Research in Redmond, Washington, USA. In the fall/winter terms 2015/16, he was Visiting Scholar at Stanford University. He received the literature award 2013 of the Information Technology Society (ITG at VDE). Find more information here.

Zusammenfassung In this paper we explore spatial audio as a new design space for applications like teleconferencing and audio stream management on mobile devices. Especially in conjunction with input techniques using motion-tracking, the interaction has to be thoroughly designed in order to allow low-dimensional input devices like gyroscopic sensors to be used for controlling the rather complex spatial setting of the virtual audio space. We propose a new interaction scheme that allows the mapping of low-dimensional input data to navigation of a listener within the spatial setting.
