      Evaluating Mapping Designs for Conveying Data Using Auditory and Tactile Displays



      Proceedings of the 32nd International BCS Human Computer Interaction Conference (HCI)

      Human Computer Interaction Conference

      4 - 6 July 2018

      Audio, vibrotactile, electrotactile, parameter mapping, information transmission, sonification, tactons



            One of the most fundamental interactions between a computing system and its user(s) is the transmission of information between the two. A common method for this transmission is parameter mapping - mapping data parameters to sensory parameters. This research focuses on non-visual information transmission including auditory, vibrotactile and electrotactile stimulation and understanding what users expect different values of data to sound and feel like. Understanding these expectations is rarely possible a priori, therefore the aim of this research is to fill this gap and begin to provide a framework of how to design parameter mappings for a variety of data values to be conveyed through a variety of non-visual parameters, such that these mappings are congruent with users expectations of how the data should be represented.
