Abstract: Electronic Travel Aids (ETA) help visually impaired people to avoid obstacles. In the ETA area new user interfaces and interaction modes are investigated. Due to increasing hardware and software complexity used in modern ETA there is an increasing demand for simulation tool to facilitate development processes. Such tools enable testing of larger varieties of user experiences in shorter time. In the field of acoustic virtual displays capabilities of different sounds and psychoacoustic phenomena to display three-dimensional sound have to be evaluated. Different simulators make it difficult to compare research results. To facilitate comparability between different approaches an ETA framework is introduced in this work. The framework includes a simulator which allows research groups to perform experiments with their specific interfaces. Due to the same underlying simulation environment results of various groups are comparable. Using a framework would make algorithms or devices f rom different research groups be directly usable for others. In this position paper the development of such a framework is reasoned and the basic requirements on such a framework are proposed. (More)
