Fitts' Evaluation of a Developed Human-in-the-Loop Assistive Device

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

In this work, a new human-computer assistive technology gadget designed for people with impairments is evaluated. The developed human-in-the-loop interface device has an embedded assistance controller and can replace the traditional mouse, gamepad and keyboard, enabling human-computer hands-free full access. This work is concerned with the assistive device performance characterization aspects. Based on the experiments carried out, the human-computer performance improvement with the embedded controller is analysed in detail. Results show that adding the human-in-the-loop assistance controller improves human-computer hands-free skills, which is an innovative contribution for the replacement of computer interfaces that depend on the human hands.
