Navigate without a map : Attention while navigating with a vibrotactile interface compared to a visual interface (English)
Abstract [sv]

Skulle det finnas fördelar med att byta ut visuella gränssnitt mot taktila för att hjälpa personer att navigera? I den här rapporten utvärderar vi hur bra våra testdeltagare var på att uppmärksamma sin omgivning under tiden som de navigerade med en av två, för syftet utvecklade, prototyper. Den ena fungerade som en mer traditionell kartapplikation för smarta telefoner och den andra gav instruktioner via vibrationer mot huden. Experimentet utfördes i experimentmiljö och resultatet visar att de som deltog experimentet, med ett vibrotaktilt navigationsgränssnitt presterade något bättre i ett påföljande arbetsminnestest, än de som löste uppgiften ett visuellt navigationsgränssnitt. Våra resultat ger indikationer på att den vibrotaktila prototypen var mindre kognitivt belastade än den visuella prototypen och därför kunde testdeltagare som använde det vibrotaktila gränssnittet vara mer uppmärksamma på sin omgivning.

Abstract [en]

Would there be advantages in replacing visual interfaces with tactile interfaces in order to help people navigate? In this report, we evaluate how well our test participants pay attention to their surroundings while they navigate with one of two purpose-built prototypes. The first prototype imitates traditional map applications for smart phones while the other gives instructions via vibrations against the skin of the participant. The experiment was conducted in a laboratory setting and we show that those who underwent the experiment with the vibrotactile navigation interface performed slightly better in a subsequent memory test, than those who completed the task with a visual navigation interface. Our results indicate that the participants using the vibrotactile prototype experienced less cognitive load than the participants with the visual prototype. Therefore they were more aware of the environment.
