Usability Heuristics for Tabletop Systems Design

Vinícius Diehl de Franceschi, Lisandra Fontoura, Marcos Silva

Abstract

Tabletops are large interactive displays that enable many users to interact at the same time. These devices have different characteristics than other touchscreen devices, such as smartphones or tablets. They cannot be easily moved to bring the screen closer to the eyes or rotate interface elements, changing the screen to horizontal or vertical, for example. In this context, this paper presents a set of heuristics to be considered in tabletop interface design from the initial planning until validation. Nielsen’s heuristics and others adapted or formalized from Nielsen, as well as researches about tabletop characteristics and user tests, were identified and analyzed to adapt and formalize heuristics to tabletop context. A set of twelve heuristics for tabletop context was created and they were considered to design simulator interfaces. Observing the militaries using them, we have gathered evidence that these heuristics can help designers to think about essential interface characteristics to support users to realize and understand the interface goal and how to interact with it.
