GESTURE: Deriving Performance-Optimized Gestural Interaction

Gesture is a starting grant project funded by The French National Research Agency (grant number ANR-16-CE33-0023). The project started in February 2017 for a duration of 4 years.


This project in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) aims at developing user expertise in interactive systems so that users can quickly and efficiently select a large set of commands. It focuses on gestural interaction, a promising input modality for selecting commands. Indeed, gestural interaction can drastically shift the learning curve of users on a wide variety of platforms (e.g. wearables) and thus deeply modify how users will interact with novel technologies. However, it is first necessary to establish a fundamental understanding of gestural interaction that influences usability and performance of information systems. This project addresses this objective and provides methods and tools to help designers to create gestural interaction.
