Abstract :
In this thesis, I study the benefits of collaboration using an Ultra-High Resolution Interactive Wall Display (UHRWD). I focus on the specific collaborative context of control rooms. Visits of control rooms and interviews with operators show that different degrees of collaboration are required in function of the situation. I believe that a UHRIWD could be beneficial in situations when close collaboration is needed. I first show that wall display encourages close collaboration compared to multiple separate displays. Then I show that the interaction techniques can also influence the degree of collaboration, for instance, a technique with a large visual footprint also encourages a close collaboration. I apply this in the design of technique to visualize road traffic forecast on a wall display for road traffic control centres. Finally, I propose techniques to help the transition between the different setups of a control room: the workstations and the wall display.
