1 Jeffrey Nichols Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI) April 8, 2003 Slide #0 Jeffrey Nichols and Brad A. Myers Carnegie Mellon University April 8, 2003 Personal Universal Controllers: Controlling Complex Appliances with GUIs and Speech CHI 2003 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

2 Jeffrey Nichols Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI) April 8, 2003 Slide #1 The Problem Appliances are too complex

3 Jeffrey Nichols Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI) April 8, 2003 Slide #2 The Problem, cont. Each complex appliance has its own idiosyncratic interface! Home and Car Stereos VCRs & Camcorders Car Navigation Systems Answering Machines … Increasingly Computerized Low Usability

4 Jeffrey Nichols Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI) April 8, 2003 Slide #3 Our Solution Separate the interface from the appliance! Handheld becomes personal universal controller (PUC) Key Features User interface-independent appliance specification Automatic generation of GUI and speech interfaces Specifications Control Feedback

5 Jeffrey Nichols Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI) April 8, 2003 Slide #4 Automatic Generation of UIs Benefits All interfaces consistent for the user With conventions of handheld Other applications and UI guidelines Even from multiple manufacturers Addresses idiosyncracy problem! Multiple modalities (GUI + Speech UI) Can take into account user preferences Will work on special purpose devices (for disabled)

6 Jeffrey Nichols Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI) April 8, 2003 Slide #5 Overview Appliances Controller Devices
