In this paper, we describe the evaluation of our prototype Universal Control Device (UCD), which enables the control of various devices in modern dynamic production environments, while being able to adapt itself to the current configuration of the environment. While it is hard to apply traditional user interface design heuristics in recent paradigms - such as Ambient Intelligence - there is a demand for suitable compensation strategies addressing usage errors, which can be met by applying an adequate adaptation strategy. In a pilot study, we gained experience regarding differences in the performance of selected adaptation strategies in the case of our demonstrator.
