1 User-Centred Design: Design Principles (lecture-4) Prof. Dr. Matthias Rauterberg Faculty Industrial Design Technical University of Eindhoven

2 © M. Rauterberg, TU/e2 The first most important invariant horizon –the horizon is always lighter than the ground ground –the ground is always darker than the horizon

3 © M. Rauterberg, TU/e3 The second most important invariant The Top –All good, strong and important things are at the top (e.g., God in heaven, the king, the boss, etc.). The Bottom –All small, weak and unimportant things are at the bottom line.

4 © M. Rauterberg, TU/e4 Limits of the Working Memory working memory –remember time < 5 sec –about 5-9 chunks –masking –interferences long-term memory –no capacity limits

5 © M. Rauterberg, TU/e5 Knowledge in the World and in the Head

6 © M. Rauterberg, TU/e6 The Difference between Internal and External Memory the mental model of the user about the external world is always incomplete all necessary information which is not in the internal memory must be provided by the environment (the “external memory”)

7 © M. Rauterberg, TU/e7 The Concept of Natural Mappings Definition [see Norman, D., 1988, p. 75ff]: –A design solution based on a natural mappings reduces the need for additional explanatory information in memory! –Natural mappings guarantee a minimum number of cognitive transformation steps. –If a design depends upon labels, it may be faulty. Labels are important and often necessary, but the appropriate use of natural mappings can minimize the need for them. Wherever labels seem necessary, consider another design!

8 © M. Rauterberg, TU/e8 Design of Light Switch Panels (1) Problem: –no direct mapping between switches and corresponding lamps

10 © M. Rauterberg, TU/e10 Corrective Design (1) Problem: –sliding door can damage the open petrol flap

11 © M. Rauterberg, TU/e11 Corrective Design (2) Solution: –extra bar to lock the sliding door

12 © M. Rauterberg, TU/e12 Design of Door Handles

13 © M. Rauterberg, TU/e13 Design of Shower Faucets Natural mapping: –hot water left side or RED –cold water right side or BLUE Un-natural mapping: –something else (see figure)

16 © M. Rauterberg, TU/e16 Double Design Water-tap with –normal screw caps plus –infrared sensor for automatic opening

18 © M. Rauterberg, TU/e18 The most important design principle Perception Space –The physical space where the user’s attention is. Action Space –The physical space where the user acts in. Design Principle: –perception space and action space must coincide!

23 © M. Rauterberg, TU/e23 Head-up Displays in Cars More information and less distraction Information on the state of the road, on the speed of the vehicle in front (supplied by the intelligent cruise control), on obstacles lying around the next bend in the road identified by the remote detection system, or direction arrows sent by the driver guidance system... drivers will be receiving more and more information from "intelligent" vehicle systems. Although the information is intended to enhance safe driving, there is a danger that an abundance of information may produce the opposite effect if driver glance-away time has to increase in order to apprehend the data.

24 © M. Rauterberg, TU/e24 Electronic Performance Support System Food processing plant worker with a first-generation prototype wearable computer. Possible applications include support for quality control data collection or assistance with environmental auditing. This system gives its users the information the users need to perform a task as they actually perform the task.

25 © M. Rauterberg, TU/e25 Airline Applications This remarkable ultra-lightweight computer, worn as a belt, delivers maximum information to users with a minimum of work. Designed for individuals who demand mobility, this computer offers voice control and heads up display for complete, hands-free operation. Users can enter or retrieve information while going about their jobs, instead of constantly returning to the shop area to check a stationary computer, or stopping work to punch keys.

26 © M. Rauterberg, TU/e26 Interlacing display and manipulation spaces Exercise-4: –Design a user interface for a computer system with some of the following components: input devices: joystick, graphic tablet with pen, keyboard, mouse, video camera, touch screen ouput devices: monitor, video projector other components: semitransparent mirrors

27 © M. Rauterberg, TU/e27 Two design principles for natural user interfaces (NUIs): No technical equipment inside to body space of the user! 2. design principle Perception space and action space must coincide! 1. design principle
