Mobile Computing Usability
Increasingly smaller and more complex computing devices
have made the human interface to these systems more
critical than ever. Multimodal interaction such as speech
and pen can offer effective alternatives for handheld
devices, which often lack keyboards or adequate screen
space. However, this must be properly designed into the
user interface (UI) to gain widespread acceptance. Further,
the use of these devices in mobile environments heightens
the challenge to provide maximum usability, expertise in UI
design, spoken language technology, and wireless
communications. The primary goal of this project is to
fundamentally study the design and usability of interfaces
to a variety of portable and ubiquitous computing devices.
