Context-sensitive User-centered Scalability: An Introduction Focusing on Exergames and Assistive Systems in Work Contexts

This paper introduces an approach for implementing context-sensitive user-centered scalability (CSUCS) into interactive applications using motion recognition. With scalability we refer to a system’s ability to adapt to the physical and cognitive abilities of a specific user. We discuss an adapted HAAT-model (Human Activity Assistive Technology Model) and the flow concept and show their use in two prototypical implementations: An “exergame” enriching sports exercises for the elderly and an assistive system using gamification elements to enrich the working experience of impaired and elderly persons.

Both systems have in common that they use motion detection and mechanics from game design (gamification). They transparently adapt to and visualize the users’ performance. The real-time analysis of the users’ movements is a prereq-uisite for the successful implementations of CSUCS.

Kurzer Lebenslauf

Oliver Korn studied Computational Linguistics as well as English and German Language at the University Stuttgart and at Glasgow University.

Since 2001 he works in projects focusing on Human Computer Interaction (HCI), assistive systems and business simulations:
From 2001 to 2005 he worked for the University Stuttgart and the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Engineering (IAO) where he led te development of the business simulation “learn2work”. From 2006 to 2007 he worked as research associate for interactive assistive systems and simulations at the Stuttgart Media University.

2003 he co-founded the Fraunhofer spin-off Korion, he since then leads as CEO.

Oliver Korn is associate lecturer for “Digital Factory” at the University of Applied Sciences in Esslingen as well as at the Steinbeis Business Academy and associate lecturer for game design at the Stuttgart Media University.

From 2010 to 2012 he studied Project Management alongside work. Since May 2012 he is a certified Project Manager (IHK).

Since 2011 he does his doctorate at the Visualization Research Center (VISUS) at the Stuttgart University on interactive assistive systems and gamification.
