Eye-gaze tracking is traditionally used to analyze ocular parameters for investigating visual psychology, marketing study, behavior analysis, and so on. Currently, eye-gaze trackers are also being used to control electronic interfaces in assistive technology, automobile control, and even consumer electronic products like smartphones and tablets. However, there are not many attempts to combine these two streams of research on active and passive uses of eye-gaze trackers. This article compares a… 

Multimodal Gaze Controlled Dashboard

This paper explores use of eye gaze tracking as a direct controller of electronic displays inside a car and analysing drivers' cognitive load by proposing and validated new multimodal fusion algorithms involving eye gaze and finger tracking systems.

Pupillometry and Head Distance to the Screen to Predict Skill Acquisition During Information Visualization Tasks

It is shown that leveraging two additional content-independent data sources, namely information on a user's pupil dilation and head distance to the screen, yields a significant improvement for predictive accuracies of skill acquisition compared to predictions made using content-dependent information related to user eye gaze attention patterns.

Cognitive Load during Eye-typing

Typing performance lowered with increased task difficulty, while blink frequency, duration and interval were higher for the difficult tasks, and pupil dilation indicated the memorization process, but did not demonstrate a difference between easy and difficult tasks.

Head and Gaze Orientation in Hemispheric Image Viewing

Head mounted displays provide a good platform for viewing of immersive 360° or hemispheric images. A person can observe an image all around, just by turning his/her head and looking at different

Pupil Dilation Fulfills the Requirements for Dynamic Difficulty Adjustment in Gaming on the Example of Pong

The usefulness of pupil diameter as basis for psychophysiologically dynamic difficulty adjustment as it is sensitive both to under- and overload is demonstrated, underlining pupil dilation’s potential value for user-adaptive interfaces in general.

Aesthetic study of patterns based on event‐related potential and eye‐tracking: Taking the decorative patterns of the Tang dynasty as an example

The decorative patterns of Tang dynasty (DPTD) combine Chinese and western styles, providing inspirations to designers. The main purpose of the study is to summarize aesthetic cognition for DPTD and

Prediction of Student Achievement Goals and Emotion Valence during Interaction with Pedagogical Agents

This paper investigates the real-time prediction of both students' achievement goals and affective valence while interacting with MetaTutor, an agent-based intelligent tutoring system, and shows that classifiers can outperform a majority-class baseline at predicting both achievement Goals and emotion valence.

Vergleich subjektiver und objektiver Beanspruchungsmessung bei dual-2-back-Aufgaben

ZusammenfassungDie situationsabhängige mentale Belastung bei der Bearbeitung kognitiver Aufgaben beeinflusst die objektive und subjektive Beanspruchung und Leistung. Dazu wird im vorliegenden Beitrag

Smooth Pursuit Study on an Eye-Control System for Continuous Variable Adjustment Tasks

ABSTRACT Smooth pursuit is a physiological phenomenon of human eyes, which can be used as eye-control interaction to avoid the “Midas” problem. This article describes the smooth pursuit properties of



Multimodal Intelligent Eye-Gaze Tracking System

A new target prediction model is developed that works for different input modalities and combined the eye-gaze tracking–based pointing with a joystick controller that can reduce pointing and selection times and the amplitude of maximum power component obtained through Fourier Transform of pupil signal significantly correlates with selection times.

Remote Eye Gaze Tracking System as a Computer Interface for Persons with Severe Motor Disability

The novelty of this study resides in the integration of several procedures, such as: real time improvement of the eye-to-mouse-pointer coordinate conversion mechanism, determination of a practical solution to the mouse click operations, and development of effective means to monitor and evaluate the system performance.

Estimation of mental workload using saccadic eye movements in a free-viewing task

The results showed that the SI measure was a more accurate measure of MWL than the pupil diameter measure, indicating that MWL of the person can be estimated by observation of SI eye movements.

A new approach for identifying cognitive state by using information obtained only from the eye, where seven eye metrics successfully discriminate between the states in all studies.

Combining Eye Gaze Input With a Brain–Computer Interface for Touchless Human–Computer Interaction

A multimodal interface combining eye movements and a BCI to a hybrid BCI, resulting in a robust and intuitive device for touchless interaction that is capable of dealing with different stimulus complexities.

Gaze-based interaction on multiple displays in an automotive environment

An unobtrusive and contactless sensor analyzes the driver's eye gaze, which enables the development of gaze driven interaction concepts for operating driver assistance and infotainment systems.

The Index of Cognitive Activity (ICA) provides an important estimate of the levels of cognitive effort of the user, based on changes in pupil dilation that occur as a user interacts with a visual display.

Twenty years of eye typing: systems and design issues

The features, functionality and methods used in the eye typing systems developed in the last twenty years are considered and other communication related issues, among them customization and voice output are addressed.

The Tell-Tale Eye

The purpose of this paper is the study and analysis of a fairly widespread false idea. I mean to take seriously one of these shreds of lore that are by and large known to everyone, and try to
