Poviding User Models Direct Access to Interfaces: An Exploratory Study of a Simple Interface With Implications for HRI and HCI

Ritter, Frank E; Van Rooy, Dirk; St. Amant, Robert; Simpson, Kate


Models of users are a way to understand and improve the usability of computer interfaces. We present here a model in ACT-R cognitive-modeling language that interacts with a publicly available driving simulation as a simple analog for robot interfaces. The model interacts with the unmodified Java interface by incorporating a novel use of bitmap parsing. The model's structure starts to describe the knowledge a human operator of a robot must have. The model also indicates some of the aspects of...[Show more]
