TouchScope: A Hybrid Multitouch Oscilloscope Interface
Proceedings of the 19th ACM International Conference on Multimodal Interaction (ICMI '17) (bib)

We present TouchScope?, a hybrid multitouch interface for common off-the-shelf oscilloscopes. Oscilloscopes are a valuable tool for analyzing and debugging electronic circuits, but are also complex scientific instruments. Novices are faced with a seemingly overwhelming array of knobs and buttons, and usually require lengthy training before being able to use these devices productively. In this paper, we present our implementation of TouchScope? which uses a multitouch tablet in combination with an unmodified off-the-shelf oscilloscope to provide a novice-friendly hybrid interface, combining both the low entry barrier of a touch-based interface and the high degrees of freedom of a conventional button-based interface. Our evaluation with 29 inexperienced participants shows a comparable performance to traditional learning materials as well as a significantly higher level of perceived usability.
