Perhaps the most challenging type of rotor noise to control is turbulent trailing edge noise.
The purpose of this project was to determine the contributions of musical training and age to refinement of pitch processing beyond this critical period.
3aAB8 – Sea turtles are silent… until there is something important to communicate: first sound recording of a sea turtle
Although sea turtles distribute worldwide in the oceans, there seems to be no recordings of sounds produced by them, perhaps until now.
Hydronephones are underwater vehicles, or underwater drones, equipped with hydrophones, or underwater microphones, which receive and record sound underwater.
4aAB4 – Analysis of bats’ gaze and flight control based on the estimation of their echolocated points with time-domain acoustic simulation
Researchers simulated the echolocation arriving at the bats during obstacle-avoiding flight based on the behavioral data.
