The research activity on interaction design for mobile systems has been ongoing since 2001. Since 2004 it has involved the STVF funded talent project Indexical Interaction Design for Context-Aware Mobile Computer Systems. This research activity addresses the challenges of human-computer interaction for mobile devices, and it aims at providing theoretical as well as empirical insight into the design of user-interfaces for mobile devices.

This activity includes four aspects of mobile device interaction design. Firstly, the use of mobile devices for supporting standardised communication for coordinating distributed process control was investigated (in collaboration with Maersk-Sealand and Nordjyllandsværket). Secondly, it was investigated how combinations of input devices and dialog forms can be optimised for mobile devices. Thirdly, the use of context-awareness and indexical interaction design as a means for reducing the complexity of the interface and demands for user-interaction has been investigated. Fourthly, research in the use of mobile systems in domestic settings has been initiated.
