Abstract

This paper introduces a game based evaluation approach for controls of hydraulic lifting devices, utilizing a 3D game environment. The game application is used creating a scenario to evaluate novel interaction techniques. The described work is a pre-study that was conducted to investigate if the presented evaluation approach using an entertainment application is suitable to assess the perceived control by employing different input devices. It was revealed that both the perception of the game and the 3D environment correlate with the perceived quality of control. Additionally it was discovered that a change in the input device influenced perceived control but not the game and 3D environment perception.
