Steht ein Mensch mit geschlossenen Augen in der freien Natur, dann kann er sich schon allein aus dem, was er hört, ein Bild der Umgebung machen. Er hört dabei dreidimensional in Richtung und Entfernung. Wir wollen dieses dreidimensionale Hörerlebnis in einer technischen Umgebung zumindest teilweise zurückgeben. Wir hoffen, dass es Piloten dabei unterstützt, ein Bild ihrer Umgebung und ihrer eigenen Position darin aufzubauen. Unsere Lösung und der Aufbau zur experimentellen Überprüfung wird im Folgenden beschrieben.
th closed eyes in the nature, humans can sense the surrounding just by listening. Listening is three-dimensional providing direction and distance clues. We try to provide at least part of this perception in technical settings. We expect to support aircraft pilots' awareness of situation and own position. We describe our solution and the means for an experimental evaluation in the following paper.

Abstract: The paper describes an auditory interface using directional sound as a possible support for pilots during approach in an instrument landing scenario. Several ways of producing directional sounds are illustrated. One using speaker pairs and controlling power distribution between speakers is evaluated experimentally. Results show, that power alone is insufficient for positioning single isolated sound events, although discrimination in the horizontal plane performs better than in the vertical. Additional sound parameters to compensate for this are proposed.
