The Importance of HCI Perspectives for Next?generation Spatial User Interfaces

Speaker:  Johannes Schöning – Bremen, Germany
Topic(s):  Human Computer Interaction


Catastrophic incidents associated with GPS devices and other personal navigation technologies are all too common: A tourist drives his rental car across a beach and directly into the Atlantic Ocean, a person in Belgium intending to drive to a nearby train station ends up in Croatia, a family traveling on a dirt road gets stranded for four days in the Australian outback. Often we blame those accidents on human error, but as HCI researchers, we have a deep understanding that human make mistakes and it’s our responsibilities to analyse the failures and improve the technological design to minimise the chances for human error. 

In my talk, I give an overview of how we design, develop and evaluate the next generation of such spatial user interfaces with a lens of HCI. I will outline our approaches to help people navigate, perceive and interact with space. In our research bridges the fields human-computer interaction (HCI), geographic information science and ubiquitous interface technologies.
