Abstract

Despite many successes in desktop applications, little work has looked at the use of pressure input on mobile devices and the different issues associated with mobile interactions e.g. non-visual feedback. This study examined pressure input on a mobile device using a single Force Sensing Resistor (FSR) with linearised output as a means of target selection within a menu, where target menu items varied in size and location along the z-axis. Comparing visual and audio feedback, results showed that, overall, eyes-free pressure interaction reached a mean level of 74% accuracy. With visual feedback mean accuracy reached 85%. Participants could accurately distinguish up to 10 pressure levels when given adequate feedback indicating a high level of control.
