Analysis of requirements and definition of potential applications
Literature and market analysis
Development and prototyping of multimodal, adaptive user interface concepts
Evaluation and optimisation of prototypes
Embedding in CQP-MMI platform
A transfer project within it´s OWL cluster of excellence
The concepts evaluated included voice control, gesture control, touch control and control by eye movement (eye tracking), as well as combination of these techniques with tried-and-tested foot-controlled user interfaces. Evaluation included handling performance, cognitive strain on the sixty test persons, as well as their own subjective opinions of the systems. The best solution proved to be multimodal operation: "task sharing" between foot and voice control.
