Touch versus mid-air gesture interfaces in road scenarios-measuring driver performance degradation

  • We present a study aimed at comparing the degradation of the driver's performance during touch gesture vs mid-air gesture use for infotainment system control. To this end, 17 participants were asked to perform the Lane Change Test. This requires each participant to steer a vehicle in a simulated driving environment while interacting with an infotainment system via touch and mid-air gestures. The decrease in performance is measured as the deviation from an optimal baseline. This study concludes comparable deviations from the baseline for the secondary task of infotainment interaction for both interaction variants. This is significant as all participants are experienced in touch interaction, however have had no experience at all with mid-air gesture interaction, favoring mid-air gestures for the long-term scenario.
