Open-Source Simulation Scheduling Framework for Real-Time Auralisation (vor Ort)
* Presenting author
With the increasing popularity and availably of virtual reality equipment for consumers, its usage for research purposes also increased. For this reason, performing acoustic simulations in real-time is a major point of interest. However, some simulations cannot be optimized enough to meet real-time conditions. In these cases, a scheduling algorithm can be employed, to distribute simulation inquires and manage the load of the simulation. In this contribution, a scheduling framework is introduced, that aims to provide best-case results for computationally expensive simulations under real-time conditions. By design, it is easy to extend with different simulation back-ends and to integrate into auralisation frameworks. Additionally, this framework provides a mechanism, to filter simulation inquiries and reduce the load on the simulation system. Possible applications of this mechanism will be discussed.
