Biography


Sven Kratz is a research assistant with Deutsche Telekom Laboratories at TU Berlin, where he is also currently pursuing his Phd studies. His primary research focus is on sensor-based mobile interfaces that allow for novel types of interaction. This includes gesture recognition, interaction based on distance sensing and pressure, tabletop applications for mobile devices and optical tracking technologies. Sven also conducts research into mobile interfaces providing efficient navigation of large information spaces such as maps, 3D environments or databases.

Sven received his Diplom degree in Computer Science from RWTH-Aachen University in 2008. In 2007, while working at the Media Computing Group at RWTH Aachen, Sven participated in the development, deployment and the user interface design of the mobile pervasive city game REXplorer, the first mobile city game released in public.

During his free time, Sven enjoys sailing, playing tennis and traveling the world.

Zusammenfassung Mobile phones seem to present the perfect user interface for interacting with smart environments, e.g. smart-home systems, as they are nowadays ubiquitous and equipped with an increasing amount of sensors and interface components, such as multi-touch screens. After giving an overview on related work this paper presents the adapted design methodology proposed by Wobbrock et al. (2009) for the development of a gesture-based user interface to a smart-home system. The findings for the new domain, device and gesture space are presented and compared to findings by Wobbrock et al. (2009). Three additional steps are described: A small pre-test survey, a mapping and a memory test and a performance test of the implemented system. This paper shows the adaptability of the approach described by Wobbrock et al. (2009) for three-dimensional gestures in the smart-home domain. Elicited gestures are described and a first implementation of a user interface based on these gestures is presented.
