The paper presents the preliminary studies carried out in ECOMODE (Event-Driven Compressive Vision for Multimodal Interaction with Mobile Devices), an EU project aiming to design a multimodal interaction suitable for elderly people using mobile technology. The project exploits EDC (Event Driven Compressive) paradigm to realize a new generation of low-power multimodal human-computer interfaces for mobile devices. In our studies we investigated (1) how older adults interact with mobile devices and (2) how they use applications based on mid-air gesture interaction. Our studies basically confirm the findings of previous works about usability and accessibility issues, specifically characterizing elderly users’ interaction with mobile technology.

Abstract

The paper presents the preliminary studies carried out in ECOMODE (Event-Driven Compressive Vision for Multimodal Interaction with Mobile Devices), an EU project aiming to design a multimodal interaction suitable for elderly people using mobile technology. The project exploits EDC (Event Driven Compressive) paradigm to realize a new generation of low-power multimodal human-computer interfaces for mobile devices. In our studies we investigated (1) how older adults interact with mobile devices and (2) how they use applications based on mid-air gesture interaction. Our studies basically confirm the findings of previous works about usability and accessibility issues, specifically characterizing elderly users’ interaction with mobile technology.
