Investigating the usability of touchscreens in a turbulent flight deck

This paper studies the use of touchscreen displays on the flight deck, focusing on the usability of commonplace single and multi-touch gestures. Results from this study show that for the two-main set of independent variables (vibration conditions and display positions) it was found the usability of the touchscreens decreased as the magnitude of the vibration increased, and that for the three display positions, the centre and side display positions usability was similar with the overhead being significantly worse in all turbulent test conditions and evaluation tasks.

Abstract

This paper studies the use of touchscreen displays on the flight deck, focusing on the usability of commonplace single and multi-touch gestures. Results from this study show that for the two-main set of independent variables (vibration conditions and display positions) it was found the usability of the touchscreens decreased as the magnitude of the vibration increased, and that for the three display positions, the centre and side display positions usability was similar with the overhead being significantly worse in all turbulent test conditions and evaluation tasks.
