Abstract

This paper presents a study looking into the effects of walking and the use of visual and audio feedback on the application of pressure for linear targeting. Positional and Rate-based control methods are compared in order to determine which allows for more stable and accurate selections, both while sitting and mobile. Results suggest that Rate-based control is superior for both mobile (walking) and static (sitting) linear targeting, and that mobility significantly increases errors, selection time and subjective workload. The use of only audio feedback significantly increased errors and task time for Positional control and static Rate-based control, but not mobile Rate-based control. Despite this, the results still suggest that audio control of pressure interaction while walking is highly accurate and usable.
