Engineering the Prover Interface

Holger Gast
2012 Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  
By a comparison with other proposed interfaces, we argue that our considerations can be applied beyond the example project.  ...  Using non-functional properties as quality attributes for software, we discuss which properties are particularly relevant to prover interfaces and demonstrate, by the example of the I 3 P interface for  ...  Re-usability The development of a prover interface requires substantial efforts.  ...

Usability benchmark study of commercially available smart phones

Jeroen Keijzers, Elke den Ouden, Yuan Lu
2008 Proceedings of the 10th international conference on Human computer interaction with mobile devices and services - MobileHCI '08  
We conducted a usability benchmark study and tested 4 different features on 3 smart phones with 3 different platforms (Nokia E6li (Symbian S60, cell phone type platform), HTC S710 (Windows Mobile 6, PC  ...  type platform), Palm Treo680 (Palm OS, PDA type platform)) with in total 43 subjects in a between-subjects design.  ...  Users might have a different mental representation of a smart phone when they think it to be either an enhanced cell phone or an enhanced PDA.  ...

Emotion on the Road—Necessity, Acceptance, and Feasibility of Affective Computing in the Car

Florian Eyben, Martin Wöllmer, Tony Poitschke, Björn Schuller, Christoph Blaschke, Berthold Färber, Nhu Nguyen-Thien
2010 Advances in Human-Computer Interaction  
The possible acceptance of such future technology by drivers is assessed in a Wizard-Of-Oz user study, and feasibility of automatically recognising various driver states is demonstrated by an example system  ...  Emotional factors and affective states are thereby crucial for enhanced safety and comfort.  ...  While the first is to be expected, it is not quite obvious that smalltalk does enhance the system's usability feeling.  ...
