Abstract [en]

Sonification is a widening field of research with many possibilitiesfor practical applications in various scientific domains. The rapiddevelopment of mobile technology capable of efficiently handlingnumerical information offers new opportunities for interactive auditorydisplay. In this scope, the SONEA project (SONification ofElite Athletes) aims at improving performances of Olympic-levelathletes by enhancing their training techniques, taking advantageof both the strong coupling between auditory and sensorimotorsystems, and the efficient learning and memorizing abilities pertainingthe sense of hearing. An application to rowing is presentedin this article. Rough estimates of the position and mean velocityof the craft are given by a GPS receiver embedded in a smartphonetaken onboard. An external accelerometer provides boatacceleration data with higher temporal resolution. The developmentof preliminary methods for sonifying the collected data hasbeen carried out under the specific constraints of a mobile deviceplatform. The sonification is either performed by the phone as areal-time feedback or by a computer using data files as input foran a posteriori analysis of the training. In addition, environmentalsounds recorded during training can be synchronized with thesonification to perceive the coherence of the sequence of soundsthroughout the rowing cycle. First results show that sonificationusing a parameter-mapping method over
