Effects of HoloLens in Collaboration: A Case in Navigation Tasks

The objective of this project is to study the effects of HoloLens™ and companion devices in collaboration. The authors designed an experiment to test the impact of HoloLens™ in support of collaboration in navigation tasks while the users used Skype™ with and without the video in a university library. Results showed that the HoloLens™ system led to improved performance (smaller number of errors, shorter completion time of one subtask) and lower workload (mental demand, temporal demand, and effort). However, the task completion time of two other subtasks became longer while using HoloLens. In addition, the users gave negative comments on the HoloLens, such as “uncomfortable to wear”, “eyestrain”, “heavy”, “blurred view”, and “inaccurate pointer”.
