Pervasive Displays: Interaction Techniques CHAPTER 5 5.1 OVERVIEW While most existing digital signage is not interactive, there is an increasing interest in supporting interaction between users and displays. By providing support for user interaction, display owners and content creators can enable a wide range of new features, such as: Navigation. Support can be provided for users to navigate content on the display. This can range from the simple equivalent of changing a channel to reproducing web navigation. Expression of interest. Allowing users to express interest in the content being shown allows display owners to tailor the content they show. Content take-away. Interaction can be used to support content take-away—either to a mobile device or to a URL or an email address. Content upload. Interaction can also support upload of content—important in applications such as notice boards [2]. In the past some public displays were augmented with physical hardware to support interaction such as buttons, joysticks or even keyboards. However, this type of hardware has largely been replaced with more modern technologies such as touch screens. In this chapter we consider the three main types of interaction with displays, i.e., touch, gesture and mobile device–based interaction. 5.2 TOUCH 5.2.1 ISSUES IN SUPPORTING TOUCH Touch http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png
