Humanized Design of Interaction Interfaces for Small Screen Devices: Take Intelligent Lock as an Example
This paper summarizes the results of preliminary user tests with 3 intelligent lock interfaces as an example for application of small screens. 12 Volunteers (6 males and 6 females) from 20 to 60 years old (M = 35.00, SD = 10.45) were recruited to complete typical tasks of intelligent lock. The difference of subjective satisfaction scores were compared and analyzed. We concluded that the comprehensibility of terminologies and icons of function buttons presented on the interface, learnability of manipulation programs, and the accessibility and effectiveness of help and documentation all affected the results.
