Abstract
Animation is a significant game changer for designing icons that can communicate their action or status without any additional elements in any design language. This can increase the comprehensibility of Human-Machine-Interfaces (HMI). In this paper, we introduce design principles on how to animate icons for HMIs to increase the comprehensibility and to draw the users’ attention. This initial paper builds the foundation for further research on this topic. The results of an expert review on animated icons are presented. The results show that there is a highly expected positive effect of animated icons on comprehensibility and reduction of error rate.
