    Abstract

    Design of future smart environments is challenging especially when we are talking about smart control room environments for advanced process control activity. One key element of our concept of a future smart control room is a movable multi-touch table called "Affordance table". In this paper we present the results of a user test in which we explored what kind of hand gestures are intuitive and comfortable when using multi-touch sensitive displays. Overall, simple gestures were preferred over more complex ones, and dimensions of gestures such as duration, force and direction have an impact on participants' evaluations. Some gestures also evoked similar associations among them. Our results suggest that user preferences and associations should be carefully considered when mapping gestures to system commands.
