Chapter
Algorithms are not to be regarded as a technical structure but as a social phenomenon – they embed themselves, currently still very subtle, into our political and social system. Algorithms shape human behavior on various levels: they influence not only the aesthetic reception of the world but also the well-being and social interaction of their user...

Design has power – to improve lives, to empower people and to break down barriers. Successful design requires (besides many other tasks) a comprehensive analysis and deep understanding of the target audience. However, current design approaches, for instance established in the field of Human Centered Design, lead to multiple biases: Design neglects...
Chapter
Die erfolgreiche Mensch-Computer-Interaktion (MCI) im Sicherheits- und Krisenkontext bedingt die Validierung der Gebrauchstauglichkeit aller im konkreten Nutzungskontext zum Einsatz kommenden interaktiven, sicherheitskritischen und krisenspezifischen Systeme.
Chapter
Die Nutzenden sicherheitskritischer Systeme bilden selten eine homogene Gruppe. Sie unterscheiden sich in vielen relevanten Merkmalen – beispielsweise dem Geschlecht –, was durchaus konkrete Folgen für die Nutzung des Systems mit sich bringen kann.
Chapter
Oft wird davon ausgegangen, dass sich die meisten Anforderungen an sicherheitskritische Systeme weltweit kaum unterscheiden. Allerdings projizieren wir als Entwickelnde unsere eigenen Annahmen auf die Lebenswelten der Nutzenden, ohne uns bewusst zu machen, aus wie vielen Einzelbestandteilen diese komplexen Wirklichkeiten aufgebaut sind. Mit der ges...
Chapter
Sicherheitskritische Mensch-Computer-Interaktion ist nicht nur derzeit ein hochaktuelles Thema, sondern wird dies auch in Zukunft bleiben. Insofern ist ein Lehr- und Fachbuch wie dieses immer nur eine Momentaufnahme, und kann immer nur einen punktuellen Stand abdecken. Dennoch kann der Versuch unternommen werden, aktuelle Trends zu identifizieren u...

Im Rahmen dieses Papers beschäftigen wir uns mit dem Spannungsfeld zwischen einer rational-technischen Perspektive, die Design als Suchproblem in einem sehr großen Suchraum klassifiziert, und einer externen Betrachtung von Design, die Design als Strategie zum Umgang mit unvollständigen Informationsbeständen begreift. Diese multiperspektivische Ause...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Artificial intelligence is a topic that is perceived between great euphoria and pure dystopia, and on the technical level between surprising functionality and frustrating technical failure. Especially in design, we as users have probably all been surprised by the functionality of a good AI interface – and at the same time desperate about things lik...
Chapter
In this paper we discuss how Augmented Reality as a form of spatial computing can contribute to the concept of a mediated city, and tackle possible problems that we understand as conflicts between different modes of spatial perception. In reference to Spatial Sociology we assume that space includes a physical dimension as well as a social dimension...

When considering the role of Augmented Reality (AR) in the urban space, most previous work is focusing on touristic and everyday life use cases. However, the project Archäologie der Gegenwart which we present in this paper illustrates the different aspects of change in Hamm during the last 50 years. Thus, our AR approach opens up a deeper understan...

Usability testing is expensive in some domains due to the resource requirements that go hand in hand with taking a complex context of use into account. Crisis-related research is one such domain, typically requiring the reenactment of an extensive crisis scenario. To lessen the resource requirements and provide a more flexible setup geared towards...

Accurate, accessible, and realtime information on the number, location, and medical condition of patients are critical for the successful management of mass casualty incidents (MCIs), where the number of patients exceeds the capacity of the emergency management service (EMS). We present a concept of a collaborative infrastructure which generates a...
Chapter
Ein virtueller Patientensimulator (VPS) kann die Einsatzkräfte bei dem Training für den ManV unterstützen und Großübungen lassen sich damit deutlich effizienter und ressourcenschonender durchführen. Durch gestenbasierte Interaktionen auf einem Multi-Touch Tisch kann mit dem vorgestellten VPS eine Triage nach mSTaRT durchführt werden.

In MCIs (mass casualty incidents) the EMC (emergency medical chief) has to gain an overview on all patients at the scene. When using paper based patient tags the patient-related information remains at the patients themselves and the information relay is complex. We propose a mobile, RFID based solution, which makes the local patient-related informa...

Whereas activity streams are intensively used in the Web 2.0, they are not well established in the context of enterprises, yet. The user centered activity stream concept has to be modified before it is efficiently usable for enterprises. Simple and effective information classification and filtering is essential for assessing specific pieces of info...

Intuitiveness, attractiveness and efficiency are in general important charac- teristics of high quality User Interfaces (UI). In the case of a Mass Casualty Incident (MCI) and other life threatening situations good user interfaces are essential as every second counts in these time-critical situations. Finding the best way to interact with the syste...

In MCIs (mass casualty incidents) patient tracking is cumbersome when using pa- per based approaches. Due to the fact that the spatial positions of the patients are essential in MCIs, we equipped the relief workers with electronic devices. We an- alyzed two concepts for patient tracking: direct and indirect tracking. The indirect tracking turned ou...

A mass casualty incident (MCI) is an emergency situation in which various circumstances lead to a great number of injured patients at the same place that cannot be immediately medicated by the regular rescue service. The fact that the regional rescue service reaches its limits leads to an abrupt and spontaneous change of the organizational structur...

Interaction with virtual maps is a common task on table- top interfaces, particularly in the context of command-and- control applications. In nearly all cases, widely known ges- tures such as pinch-to-zoom are employed. To explore alter- natives and variations of this mode of interaction, we have defined five alternative gesture sets for the tasks...

This work presents a concept for combining paper based and electronic objects in order to improve information access in mass casualty incidents. We propose to improve the relief workers' documentation task by combining PBPTs (paper based patient tags) with RBPTs (RFID based patient tags). This combination, which we call RFID Enhanced Patient Tags (...

As more interactive surfaces enter public life, casual interactions from passersby are bound to in- crease. Most of these users can be expected to carry a mobile phone or PDA, which nowadays oers signicant computing capabilities of its own. This oers new possi- bilities for interaction between these users' private dis- plays and large public ones....
