Sample text

Comparisons across age, gender, technology experience and educational levels were undertaken to assess the extent to which these demographic characteristics influenced user’s mental models and the effective usability of various features. Conducting the study with a US sample was intended to provide the German based design team with awareness on any potential culture based differences in interaction style with the HMI. The overall goal was to provide feedback and insight to the design team that could be utilized to adjust or otherwise enhance the final implementation.

Users were required to do their best to register every link, however, accuracy of results was not examined, as it was assessed in the Technical Validation Test. After the test, suggestions of 41 improvements and bug experiences were obtained using questionnaires. RESULTS Suggestions of improvements and bug experiences were collected from monitoring the users‟ performance as well as questionnaires, such as data buffer bug (the buffers were not emptied before a new data collection, this lead to results adding up).

In Technical Validation and Usability tests. TECHNICAL VALIDATION TEST Technical Validation aimed to ensure the CLA system worked technically and achieved acceptable accuracy. This test was conducted using previous LA studies with a range of different complexity tasks. Comparisons were made between results of CLA and the manual results (obtained from previous reports) to assess its accuracy. 36 METHOD This test was conducted in two stages, Stage 1: previous study of assessing the reproduction of a two-sided document using a photocopier (Whitehead, 2008), which consisted of approximately 10 links; Stage 2: ambulance patient compartment (Thorne, 2008) was re-evaluated in CLA system using video clips of clinical staff simulating patient (mannequin) treatment in a ambulance mock-up.
