It is well known that, due to an idiosyncrasy of German orthography, compound words make up a major fraction of German vocabulary. And most Out-Of-Vocabulary (OOV) compounds are composed of frequent words already in the lexicon. This paper introduces a new method for handling the(More)
In this paper we present an approach for creating user interfaces from abstract representations for the automotive domain. The approach is based on transformations between different user interface abstraction levels. Existing user interface representation methods are presented and evaluated. The impact of specific requirements for automotive human-machine(More)
Mobile Internet access via smartphones puts demands on in-car infotainment systems , as more and more drivers like to access the Internet while driving. Spoken dialog systems (SDS) distract drivers less than visual/haptic-based dialog systems. However, in conversational SDSs drivers might speak utterances which are not in the domain of the SDS and thus(More)
This paper reports experimental results from a driving simulation study in order to compare different speech-based in-car human-machine interface concepts. The effects of the use of a command-based and a conversational in-car speech dialog system on usability and driver distraction are evaluated. Different graphical user interface concepts have been(More)
Due to the mobile Internet revolution, people tend to browse the Web while driving their car which puts the driver's safety at risk. Therefore, an intuitive and non-distractive in-car speech interface to the Web needs to be developed. Before developing a new speech dialog system in a new domain developers have to examine what the user's preferred(More)
