User interaction with mobile devices can be negatively affected by contextual factors, known as situationally-induced impairments. In this paper, we provide a systematic overview of established situational impairments and their impact on interaction with mobile devices, as well as existing methods for their detection and design guidelines to overcome them. We also propose a research roadmap for this topic where we argue that more experiments are required regarding the less investigated situational impairments. Furthermore, we argue that successful detection of the presence of a specific situational impairment is paramount before solutions can be proposed to adapt mobile interfaces to accommo..
