Biography

Katrin Wolf is a graduate student of the International Graduate School H-C3 that strongly focuses on Human-Centric Communication. She is investigating ergonomic busy-hand interfaces and is supervised by Sebastian Möller (T-Labs Berlin), Joachim Sauter (UdK Berlin), and Michael Rohs (University of Hannover). Katrin Wolf explores the potential and limits of microgestures that are executed with the grasping hand through user studies with interactive prototypes. Her research motivation is to understand human abilities and skills and transfer that to ergonomic interface design for on-the-go, busy-hand, and ubiquitous computing scenarios. The background of Katrin Wolf is in interaction design and she received two diplomas from the University of the Arts Berlin, one in design and one in communications. Before joining the QU Lab, Katrin was an intern at University of Canterbury in New Zealand and worked in the Human Interface Technology Lab that is headed by Mark Billinghurst.

Zusammenfassung Nowadays, mobile devices provide new possibilities for gesture interaction due to the large range of embedded sensors they have and their physical form factor. In addition, auditory interfaces can now be more easily supported through advanced mobile computing capabilities. Although different types of gesture techniques have been proposed for handheld devices, there is still little knowledge about the acceptability and use of some of these techniques, especially in the context of an auditory interface. In this paper, we propose a novel approach to the problem by studying the design space of gestures proposed by end-users for a mobile auditory interface. We discuss the results of this explorative study, in terms of the scope of the gestures proposed, the tangible aspects, and the users' preferences. This study delivers some initial gestures recommendations for eyes-free auditory interfaces.
