Abstract

See full text

A cognitive load reduction system comprises a sound source position decision engine configured to receive one or more audio signals from a corresponding one or more signal generators, wherein the sound source position decision engine is further configured to identify two or more discrete sound sources within at least one of the one or more audio signals. The cognitive load reduction system further comprises an environmental assessment engine configured to assess environmental sounds within an environment. The cognitive load reduction system further comprises a sound location engine configured to output one or more audio signals configured to cause a plurality of speakers to change a perceived location of at least one of the discrete sound sources within the environment responsive to locations of other sounds within the environment.
