About the SoundSpaces Platform
Moving around in the world is naturally a multisensory experience, but today's embodied agents are deaf -- restricted to solely their visual perception of the environment. This project aims to fill this void by building agents capable of audio-visual navigation in complex, acoustically and visually realistic 3D environments.
SoundSpaces is a first-of-its-kind dataset of audio renderings based on geometrical acoustic simulations
for two sets of publicly available 3D environments -- Matterport3D1 and Replica2.
SoundSpaces is AIHabitat-compatible and allows rendering arbitrary sounds at any pair of source and receiver
(agent) locations on a uniform grid of nodes. The room-impulse-responses (RIR) enable realistic audio
experience of arbitrary sounds in the photorealistic environments.
