Conference Paper
A variety of technologies are being developed to help older people live healthier, more independent, and safer lives, for longer. While many of these technologies are positively impacting the lives of older adults, they also have the potential to dictate specific behaviours or restrict their autonomy rather than empower them. The vulnerability theo...

It is challenging to provide users with a haptic weight sensation of virtual objects in VR since current consumer VR controllers and software-based approaches such as pseudo-haptics cannot render appropriate haptic stimuli. To overcome these limitations, we developed a haptic VR controller named Triggermuscle that adjusts its trigger resistance acc...

Browser extensions enrich users' browsing experience, e.g., by blocking unwanted advertisements on websites. To perform these functions, users must grant certain permissions during the installation process. These permissions, however, give very limited information about the fact that they allow the extension to access user's personal data and brows...

Zusammenfassung Wearables unterstützen ihre Nutzer:innen in unterschiedlichen Kontexten. Dabei erzeugen und nutzen sie eine Vielzahl von oft sehr persönlichen (Gesundheits-)Daten, ohne dass Nutzer:innen über die notwendigen Kenntnisse und Erfahrungen verfügen, um reflektierte Entscheidungen über die Nutzung dieser Daten treffen zu können. In der ak...

Nowadays, smartwatches are widely used on a daily basis by a growing user base. They can constantly collect motion and health related data via different sensors such as accelerometer or heart rate sensors. This data offers new possibilities for designing VR experiences, interacting within VR, or enhancing a VR experience by adjusting it to its user...

While commercial controllers for virtual reality (VR) offer a variety of components to register user input, their ability to generate meaningful haptic feedback during the interaction lags behind. This prevents users from experiencing the virtual world through their haptic sense. For example, grabbing a light virtual object feels identical to grabb...

With the rise of COVID-19 cases globally, many countries released digital tools to mitigate the effects of the pandemic. In Germany the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) published the Corona-Data-Donation-App, a virtual citizen science (VCS) project, to establish an early warning system for the prediction of potential COVID-19 hotspots using data from we...

Mobile navigation apps are among the most used mobile applications and are often used as a baseline to evaluate new mobile navigation technologies in field studies. As field studies often introduce external factors that are hard to control for, we investigate how pedestrian navigation methods can be evaluated in virtual reality (VR). We present a s...

Many people are increasingly surrounded by digital technologies and applications that collect, process and share personal data. At the same time, few read and understand the often long and complicated privacy statements of their individual devices and applications. Within the InviDas project, we ensure that users of smart wearables, such as fitness watches, will in future have better insight into their data profiles and will thus be able to make informed decisions more easily. New forms of data visualization and gamification are being researched, with which both manufacturers and users can make data privacy declarations more comprehensible and transparent. The project is funded by the BMBF. The InviDas project is jointly realized by the Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V., Stiftung Digitale Chancen, Garmin Würzburg GmbH, RWTH Aachen University (Software Engineering, Chair and Institute of Industrial Engineering and Ergonomics and Applied Ethics), Universität Bremen and Otto-Friedrich Universität Bamberg.
