title Auditory Navigation and the Escape from Smoke Filled Buildings
source CAAD Futures 1997 [Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-7923-4726-9] München (Germany), 4-6 August 1997, pp. 299-304
summary This paper addresses the issue of escape from unfamiliar, smoke filled buildings such as hotels or airports where the scenario of complete visual deprivation may result in occupant death. It proposes that we may be able to apply concise auditory information to the escape procedure, using predictive 'virtual acoustic' techniques in order to assess its feasibility.
