Fysisk interface design

2018/2019

Modulets indhold, forløb og pædagogik

Physical Interface Design is a course module where students learn about basic principles of electronics and how different touch based sensors can be interfaced to a microcontroller to design novel forms of interactions between man and machines.

Læringsmål

Viden

  • Must have knowledge about basic user interface design principles for realizing a physical interface for human-computer interaction.
  • Must have knowledge of related work in sensors technology and media applications
  • Must have knowledge of basic electronics: capacitor, diode, and transistor
  • Must have knowledge of sensing possibilities: push buttons, potentiometers, photo resistors and force sensitive resistors (FSR)
  • Must have an understanding of data mapping strategies
  • Must have understanding on using micro-controllers: interface to the computer, analog/digital output
  • Must have understanding of circuit applications: DC Filtering, circuit protection and amplifier
  • Must have an understanding of basic programming concepts in context of real-time use of signals (such as sampling rate, scaling and filtering)

Færdigheder

  • Must be able to apply knowledge to the development of a physical interface artifact used in conjunction with a PC software application- and demonstrate its use (application)
  • Must be able to apply theories and methods to the design of a user-test of artifact, including: meeting end-user(s), assessing needs, translation of needs into design goals, arranging test and designing test-set up including data collection for evaluation of test according to goals.
  • Must be able to analyze use of the artifact
  • Must be able to synthesize knowledge in written documentation

Kompetencer

  • Must have ability to evaluate the artifact
