PERVASIVE APPLICATION EVALUATION WITHIN VIRTUAL ENVIRONMENTS

Vassilis-Javed Khan, Koos Nuijten, Nils Deslé

Abstract

In this position paper, we present a setup for evaluating users’ experience of pervasive applications within a virtual environment. We review existing literature on mixed reality and pervasive application evaluation. A conclusion of that review is the potential of evaluating applications such as location-based services in a virtual environment. Finally, we present our plans of evaluating user experience factors of location-based advertisements in a virtual supermarket, highlight methodological considerations and sketch future research directions.
