Kurzbeschreibung (Abstract)

In the field of human-computer interaction most information is transported visually to the user. Within this paper, a study is presented in which the participants had the task to navigate through a path on a screen without eye-contact. Instead, they used a mouse which guided the participants by tactile feedback (vibration). This tactile feedback was given with the help of dielectric elastomer stack actuators. Within the study two different actuator layouts for tactile feedback were compared. It turned out, that most people were able to navigate the path within 90 seconds without having eye-contact to the screen and that an actuator layout which supports the differentiation between the single actuators is preferred over a layout with increased actuator sizes.
