Performance, characteristics, and error rates of cursor control devices for aircraft cockpit interaction

Peter R. Thomas
2018 International Journal of Human-Computer Studies  
This paper provides a comparative performance analysis of a hands-on-throttle-and-stick (HOTAS) cursor control device (CCD) with other suitable CCDs for an aircraft cockpit: an isotonic thumbstick, a trackpad  ...  Errors for all devices were shown to increase with decreasing target size (p < 0.001) and, to a lesser effect, increasing target distance (p < 0.01).  ...  The author also greatly appreciates the time offered by the participants who undertook the experiments.  ...

Keyboard Surface Interaction: Making the keyboard into a pointing device [article]

Julian Ramos, Zhen Li, Johana Rosas, Nikola Banovic, Jennifer Mankoff, Anind Dey
2016 arXiv   pre-print
Pointing devices that reside on the keyboard can reduce the overall time needed to perform mixed pointing and typing tasks, since the hand of the user does not have to reach for the pointing device.  ...  However, previous implementations of this kind of device have a higher movement time compared to the mouse and trackpad due to large error rate, low speed and spatial resolution.  ...  As mentioned earlier, experts did not have a learning effect on any devices for homing time, thus we conclude that Fingers provides the best homing time.  ...

Danilo Pani, Gianluca Barabino, Alessia Dessi, Iosto Tradori, Matteo Piga, Alessandro Mathieu, Luigi Raffo
2014 IEEE Journal of Translational Engineering in Health and Medicine  
This form of rehabilitation consists of physical exercises adapted to the specific pathology. Its effectiveness is strongly dependent on the patient's adhesion to such a program.  ...  The obtained results proved that the device is an effective and safe tool for assessing hand disability and monitoring kinesiotherapy exercise, portending the potential exploitability of such a methodology  ...  end of the whole session, just before data transmission) or on the PC when a therapist is locally controlling the device in real-time.  ...

SlideBar: Analysis of a linear input device

Leslie E Chipman, Benjamin B Bederson, Jennifer A Golbeck
2004 Behavior and Information Technology  
The SlideBar is a physical linear input device for absolute position control of one degree of freedom, consisting of a physical slider with a graspable knob positioned near or attached to the keyboard.  ...  The SlideBar provides absolute position control in one dimension, is usable in the non-dominant hand in conjunction with a pointing device, and offers constrained passive haptic feedback.  ...  The primary one results from the fact that the user must use a generalpurpose pointing device to control it. Each movement of the user's hand between the keyboard and the mouse takes time.  ...

2005 CHI '05 extended abstracts on Human factors in computing systems - CHI '05  
The result is an input device requiring minimal space but is potentially more efficient than a touchpad due to the tactile feedback of a tip on a finger.  ...  Our first prototype consists of a transparent tip and a small CMOS image sensor that tracks the movement of a finger on a tip.  ...  time was reduced by 12.5 % on the average.  ...

Evaluation of Mouse, Rate-Controlled Isometric Joystick, Step Keys, and Text Keys for Text Selection on a CRT

STUART K. CARD, WILLIAM K. ENGLISH, BETTY J. BURR
1978 Ergonomics  
Four devices are evaluated with respect to how rapidily they can be used to select text on a CRT display. The mouse is found to be fastest on all counts and also to have the lowest error rates.  ...  Positioning time for the key devices is shown to be proportional to the number of keystrokes which must be typed.  ...  The authors wish to thank 1. Elkind, T. Moran, and A. Newell for comments on drafts of the manuscript and E. R. F. W. Crossman for bringing De long's paper to their attention.  ...
