Kilic, Eylem
The purpose of this study is to investigate the usability problems while using one of the applications of smart card, electronic purse with self service interfaces of NETMATIK. The usability problems of this self service interface were evaluated by heuristic evaluation and user trials.Two target groups, students and staffs, were involved in user trial. The average age for the first (younger) group was 18 while it was over 40 for the second (older) group. The problems that two target groups have encountered were evaluated seperately and the effect of age differences on problems has been explored whether it is the same for both target groups or not. The result of this study shows that both target groups had approximately same problems with the interface; however, these problems are more severe for the older groups. The common problems which both groups have with the interface are being timed out by the system, failing to enter password for card, failing to enter required password for e-purse. Implication for interface design is discussed.

Modelling long term user experience for mobile phones
Karapars, Gülhis Zeynep; Erbuğ, Çiğdem; Börekçi, Naz Ayşe Güzide Z.; Department of Industrial Design (2013)
This study presents an exploration into evolution of user experience in the long-term use of smartphones. The research methodology was comprised of two phases. In the first phase, a qualitative longitudinal study was conducted with 21 first-time users of smartphones for a duration of three months. Users were interviewed in the first, second and third months of their usage and telephone questionnaires were made in between the interviews. The analysis was made with Grounded Theory method. The evolving stages ...
Use of large multi touch interfaces: a research on usability and design aspects
Dönmez, Mehmet; Çağıltay, Kürşat; Department of Information Systems (2015)
This study explores the design considerations and usability factors of using large multi touch interfaces. During this study, an experimental approach incorporating a large multi touch interfaces environment was used. After the expert analysis and pilot test session, there were end user usability test sessions. During the data collection from both expert and non-expert users, there were interview sessions. After collecting data, two different analysis methods were used, namely, analysis for eye movement dat...
Application of design for verification with concurrency controllers to air traffic control software
Betin Can, Aysu; Lindvall, Mikael; Lux, Benjamin; Topp, Stefan (2005-11-11)
We present an experimental study which demonstrates that model checking techniques can be effective in finding synchronization errors in safety critical software when they are combined with a design for verification approach. We apply the concurrency controller design pattern to the implementation of the synchronization operations in Java programs. This pattern enables a modular verification strategy by decoupling the behaviors of the concurrency controllers from the behaviors of the threads that use them u...
Demonstratives in the context of a collaborative problem solving task
Büyüktekin, Faruk; Çakır, Murat Perit; Temürcü, Ceyhan; Department of Cognitive Sciences (2018)
Multimodal user interfaces have become increasingly important. They are being used in various applications such as computer games, online education, simulations, and assistive technology. Such interfaces now can make use of inputs coming from different modalities such as speech and eye gaze. This multimodality enables situated dialogue between users and artificial agents, encouraging collaborative language use. Naturally, people need to refer to entities in the surrounding environment using demonstratives d...
Identification and localization on a wireless magnetic sensor network
Baghaee, Sajjad; Uysal Bıyıkoğlu, Elif; Gürbüz, Sevgi Zübeyde; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2012)
This study focused on using magnetic sensors for localization and identification of targets with a wireless sensor network (WSN). A wireless sensor network with MICAz motes was set up utilizing a centralized tree-based system. The MTS310, which is equipped with a 2-axis magnetic sensor was used as the sensor board on MICAz motes. The use of magnetic sensors in wireless sensor networks is a topic that has gained limited attention in comparison to that of other sensors. Research has generally focused on the d...
