TOUCHPAD AS INTERACTION INPUT CONTROL FOR USE OF IN-VEHICLE INFOTAINMENT SYSTEMS
Paper in proceedings, 2009
There is evidence that In-Vehicle Infotainment Systems (IVIS) with complex interactivity can distract the driver and that new interaction methods are needed. We report on and assess the suitability of a multi-touch touchpad controlled IVIS. In summary the results show that a rich multi-touch controlled interface can be developed that users accept and like, regardless of previous personal preference of touchpad usage. The results indicate that a bi-modal feedback system, either visual-audio or visual-haptic is needed to facilitate necessary driver control with regard to road safety.
