G-DEDUCE - Gestures in the Design of new tools to express Emotions During User Centred Evaluations



Landoni M.


Pasch M.



This will be an extension to existing project DEDUCE, as such it will aim at designing, implementing and evaluating new tools for allowing easier interactions with users when measuring usability of interactive systems.When developing new tools for supporting evaluation involving adults these should focus on the role of capturing emotions, negative or positive, generated by interacting with system or simply by its existence.This type of tools is expected to be particularly suitable for supporting designers during iterative sessions allowing for fast informal feedback to be gathered and inform next stage of design.It is also expected that the same tools could be used to facilitate a number of human computer interactions that would normally involve the use of linguistic skills.The originality of the study is in its attention to a crucial area of interdisciplinary research often over-looked, that is evaluation techniques and their use in different scenarios. This extension will enable us to explore further the way body gesture could be captured, classified and interpreted as a direct and effective form of users´ feedback.
