Audio Hardware Calibration and Audiometry
This project is to focus on building an application that can be used to perform a audiology-grade calibration of consumer headphones (and microphones) on a mobile device (such as an iPhone or iPad). The intern will use mathematical techniques (such as spectral analysis) to help gather and analyze user information more efficiently in order to provide a fast, accurate assessment of the user’s hardware capabilities for the purposes of hearing testing. The benefit to the partner organization is the creation of an application that, with minimal modification, can be marketed to hospitals, hearing centers, and other medical-related fields; as well as to the general public. In addition the company will gain valuable benefits from working with academic partners such as access to sophisticated analysis and simulation software (such as MATLAB).
