Research Group HumanComputer Interaction

The Human-Computer Interaction research group is located at the Institute of Media Informatics at Ulm University, and is headed by Enrico Rukzio.

We are interested in designing intelligent interactive systems that enable people to be more efficient, satisfied and expressive in their daily lives. We design, implement (hard- and software) and evaluate novel interaction techniques, applications and services which either solve existing problems or provide new opportunities. 

Our research approach is based on user centred design and iterative prototyping. At this, we involve potential users in all steps of the process, use a low- and high-fidelity prototyping techniques and conduct a large number of user studies, evaluations and field tests.

Our research focuses on the design of novel interaction concepts, devices and applications in areas such as extended reality, mobile and wearable interaction, interaction in smart environments, automotive user interfaces, interactive educational systems, sustainability, and health-supporting interfaces.
