Measuring the difficulty of steering through corners

  title={Measuring the difficulty of steering through corners},
  author={Robert Pastel},
The steering law is intended to predict the performance of cursor manipulations in user interfaces, but the law has been verified for only a few path shapes and should be verified for more if it is to be generalized. This study extends the steering law to paths with corners. Two experiments compare the movement times of negotiating paths with corners to straight paths with the same width and movement amplitude. The experimental results show a significant effect on the movement times due to the… CONTINUE READING
