Conception et Evaluation de Technique d'Interaction pour Dispositifs Mobiles

Abstract : Nowadays the cell phone is a multifunction tool that is used to communicate, learn, interact in different contexts such as at home, in the street or in public transport. However, the use of these features is limited by the interfaces of these devices (small screen, reduced or absent physical keyboard, one-handed interaction, etc.). The improvement of these interfaces is a then a scientific and industrial challenge. In this context, this PhD thesis first studies the specific constraints of mobile devices and classifies the existing techniques and the solutions proposed to solve the previously identified constraints. It then proposes five new interaction techniques that answer issues not fully resolved. Taptap and MagStick are two techniques that address the problem of small target acquisition with the thumb on a touch screen. Physical keyboards are often missing on mobile devices and the LeafMenu proposes to reintroduce an expert mode to linear menus by adding gestural shortcuts. MicroRolls proposes to increase the input bandwidth of mobile devices by using rolling movements of the thumb. These gestures, distinguishable from usual gestures through their specific shapes, thus increase the input vocabulary of touch screens by allowing, for instance, the activation of very frequent commands. The last contribution of this thesis focuses on the use of tridimensional gestures as another way to enrich the input vocabulary as illustrated by TimeTilt, a technique that combines fluid and impulsive gestures to facilitate navigation between multiple views
