Abstract

In this paper we present the most recent technological innovations introduced into the artistic installation we called RF Sounding, keep on maintaining our fundamental goals: creating an artistic installation that can be used for educational purposes as well. Indeed we have been inspired by the impossible human dream of flying that we reasoned on the acoustic dimension. We decided to make the inaudible, audible by a translation in the audio bandwidth of signals coming from cellular networks. We thus want to provide the user, entering the specifically defined area, with awareness of radio frequency signals characterizing the cellular networks band. With respect to the prototype presented in previous papers we finally exploit the information coming from a spectrum analyser, thus taking into account also the whole uplink, and position data acquired from a Microsoft Kinect in order to realize localization inside the equipped area, without the need for the users to wear an active device.
