Cognitive infocommunication channels are abstract channels which use a combination of sensory substitution and sensorimotor extension to convey structured information via any number of sensory modalities. Our goal is to develop engineering systems which are capable of using cognitive infocommunication channels in order to convey feedback information in novel and meaningful ways. Such applications could help reduce the cognitive load experienced by the user on the one hand, and help alleviate the undesirable effects of hidden parameters on the other. We describe the main challenge behind the development of cognitive infocommunication channels as a two-part problem which consists of the design of a synthesis algorithm and the design of a parameter-generating function for the synthesis algorithm. We use formal concept algebra to describe the kinds of synthesis algorithms which are capable of reflecting realistic forms of interaction between the user and the information which is to be communicated. Using this model, we describe an application example in which auditory signals are used to convey information on tactile percepts. Through an experimental evaluation of the application, we demonstrate that our approach can be used successfully for the design of cognitive infocommunication channels. © 2012 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
