How do humans detect the distance of sound? For example if my phone is ringing in the other room how do I know that it's in the other room and not beside me?
I am planning on developing a software to do the same.
This is the only stuff I have found on the internet->
- Humans detect echo to calculate distance of source of sound. Farther away the source more is the echo.
- Loudness of noise may also play a role.
Most of the research is psychological and does not explain the exact technical aspects of and calculations done by the brain.
