RESEARCH

Sound focusing/Personal audio system

A personal sound zone refers to the zone of focused sound energy in which only the listener can hear loud sound. The purpose of generating a personal sound zone can be either for minimizing the distraction of other listeners or for constructing personal sound systems that allow listeners located in different regions to enjoy different sound content at the same time.

The realization of personal sound systems, however, is not possible without information on the acoustic environment that scatters sound wave into complex forms. The key of this research is with the efficiency and robustness of the control that secure the performance
