Description

The project "C01: Quantifying Interaction" is part of the Transregional Collaborative Research Center TRR 161: "Quantitative Methods for Visual Computing", funded by the DFG.


The main goal of this project is the definition and validation of new quantitative measurements to evaluate the interaction with visual computing systems. This includes the development of new quantitative models, metrics and tasks to unify usability test settings as well as the integration of the theoretical and methodological findings into a framework to evaluate interaction. To this end, we will collect and develop a set of tools to ease planning, conduction, analysis and comparison of replicable quantitative experiments in visual computing systems.


Models

We developed a theoretical model of measuring cognitive load using eye tracking technology.

Theoretical Model of Measuring Cognitive Load using Eye Tracking Technology

Feel free to read the paper Measuring Cognitive Load using Eye Tracking Technology in Visual Computing.

Metrics and Tasks

Spatial Memory

We used well-established spatial memory task and investigated holistic metrics for it.

Our three different input modalities PAD, TOUCH, and MOVE used on LARGE.

Feel free to read the paper Memory in Motion: The Influence of Gesture- and Touch-Based Input Modalities on Spatial Memory or use our task for your own experiment.


We further developed a well-established spatial memory task and investigated holistic metrics for it.

Collaborative Mixed Reality Environments

Feel free to read the paper Virtual Objects as Spatial Cues in Collaborative Mixed Reality Environments: How They Shape Communication Behavior and User Task Load.

Jens Müller's talk at CHI'16 was also recorded and is available online:



Sensemaking

We used a well-established sensemaking task and investigated holistic metrics for it.

Collaborative Cross-Device Sensemaking

Feel free to read the paper When Tablets meet Tabletops: The Effect of Tabletop Size on Around-the-Table Collaboration with Personal Tablets.

The talk of Ulrike Pfeil and Johannes Zagermann at CHI'16 was also recorded and is available online:
