existing sound propagation approaches limitations
Existing Sound Propagation Approaches : Limitations
  • Several methods available for sound propagation
    • Too slow for real-time sound propagation taking into account the increasing scene complexity, dynamic environments and multiplicity of sources/listeners
  • Acceleration techniques : Culling structures like BSP-trees, SIMD hacks, GPU implementations are no longer sufficient
  • Most VR systems do not allocate a large chunk of resources for handling sound
    • Solve the sound propagation problem for simplified scenes
    • Introduces the need for defining a metric for measuring acoustic fidelity

Taxonomy of Geometry Reduction techniques [1]

criterion for geometry reduction for acoustics
Criterion for geometry reduction for acoustics
  • Absorption coefficients for polygonal faced in the scene : controlling error while blending and simplification
  • Rough surfaces account for diffuse reflection and scattering
  • Volume and total absorption area must be preserved as various parameters such as reverberation time heavily dependent on these criteria
  • For handling reflections correctly, surface normals must be preserved as accurately as possible
  • Features comparable to the wavelength of the sound must be preserved
  • Tradeoffs between:
    • Cost of simplification and sound propagation
    • Offline simplification versus real-time simplification
    • Ease of implementation of the proposed approach
    • Local reduction of features versus global simplification
project goals
Project goals
  • Given a simplified scene, how different is the sound ‘quality’ as compared to the original
    • Could be statistical, acoustic metrics or perceptual user studies
    • Planning to use an industry standard benchmark for acoustic measurements such as CATT, ODEON
  • Given such a metric, how and by how much can one simplify a given scene geometry without perceptual differences in ‘quality’
  • Progressive simplification and LOD: Providing frame-rate guarantees given the resources available for sound simulation and propagation
project roadmap and deliverables
Project roadmap and deliverables
  • Use existing libraries to simplify scene geometry and carry out initial tests using CATT to determine an error metric for measuring acoustic fidelity
  • Study existing methods for geometry simplification and choose an existing approach/ propose a novel approach to solve this problem
  • Integration with existing work : Sound propagation using ray-frusta tracing / adaptive rectangular decomposition
  • Geometry Reduction in Room Acoustics Modeling: Samuel Siltanen
  • Significant Facet Retrieval for Real-Time 3D Sound Rendering in Complex Virtual Environments: C.Joslin, M.Thalmann
  • Instant Sound Scattering: N.Tsingos, C.Dachsbacher, S.Lefebvre, M.Dellepiane
  • Interactions of Model Detail Level and Scattering Coefficients in Room Acoustic Computer Simulation: L.Wang, J.Rathsam, J.Rindel
