HUMAN-COMPUTER INTERACTION

TR
   
HCI


  • Cameras: There are cameras which shows the users’ face, the way they use keyboards and their behavior.

  • Eye Tracking Device and The Test Computer: The test computer in the test room and the observer computer in the observer room are on the same network. The eye tracking device is connected to the test computer. The data taken from the users (where they look at on the screen, for how long and how many times, etc.) is collected in this computer. The observer computer records the videos of the users and also it can get the data on the test computer through the network and monitor it.

  • The Observer Computer: It stays in the observer room. The  screen images recorded by the cameras are gathered in this computer with Morae software.

  • The Control Unit: This unit controls the cameras which rotates 360 degrees and displays the screen images of the test and the observer computers.

  • Microphones and Amplificators: There are microphones in the test room and the observer room used for connecting the user and the observer. The rosolution of voice recordings are increased by amplificators.

  • Sound Mixer: There is a sound mixer which controls the microphone and the speaker in the test room and the observer room.
  • Sound Insulation (Sound Proofing):  Sound insulation (proofing) is necessary for isolating the room from external sounds and noise to maintain appropriate conditions during the tests.
