While performing multiple competing tasks at the same time, e.g., when driving, assistant systems can be used to create cues to direct attention towards required information. However, poorly designed cues will interrupt or annoy users and affect their performance. Therefore, we aim to identify cues that are not missed and trigger a quick reaction without changing the primary task performance. We conducted a dual-task experiment in an anechoic chamber with LED-based stimuli that faded in or… Expand
Exploring Vibrotactile and Peripheral Cues for Spatial Attention Guidance
It was found that tactile cues led to faster arousal times than visual cues, whereas the attention shift speed for visual cues was faster than tactile cues. Expand
Where to Look: Exploring Peripheral Cues for Shifting Attention to Spatially Distributed Out-of-View Objects
A suitable technique for visualization of these out-of-view objects is identified and different cue designs are explored to advance this technique to shift the user's attention. Expand
LAME: light-controlled attention guidance for multi-monitor environments
A light display for a multi-monitor setup that is controlled by eye-tracker input to guide the attention of a user from the currently focused display to another display, that is in demand of attention. Expand
FlyingARrow: Pointing Towards Out-of-View Objects on Augmented Reality Devices
FlyingARrow is developed, which consists of a visual representation that flies on-demand from the user's line of sight toward the position of the out-of-view object and returns an acoustic signal over headphones if reached and discusses the challenges, and opportunities, in combining visual and acoustic representations to overcome visual clutter.

Contrasting effects of sensory limits and capacity limits in visual selective attention
The hypothesis that distractor processing depends on the extent to which high perceptual load exhausts attention in relevant processing is supported, and the results provide a dissociation between perceptual load and general task difficulty and processing speed. Expand
Peripheral Popout: The Influence of Visual Angle and Stimulus Intensity on Popout Effects
This study conducted a study to examine the accuracy of popout target identification using different visual variables, each at five different levels of intensity, and at a wide range of angles from the display center, showing that motion is a strong popout stimulus, even at low intensities and wide angles.

Flicker Observer Effect: Guiding Attention Through High Frequency Flicker in Images
It is demonstrated that high frequency flicker can be used to draw the user's attention to important image regions using a standard high refresh‐rate computer monitor with minimal visible modifications to the image. Expand
Impact of subtle gaze direction on short-term spatial information recall
The impact of SGD on short-term spatial information recall was determined to be quite fast and accurate, which shows that the technique is successful at directing gaze, but does not necessarily mean that the viewer fully processed the visual details of those regions or remembered them. Expand
Guiding attention in controlled real-world environments
This work addresses two main challenges in guiding attention to real-world objects: determining what object the viewer is currently paying attention to, and providing a visual cue on a different part of the scene in order to draw the viewer's attention there. Expand
Left visual field attentional advantage in judging simultaneity and temporal order.
Findings constitute additional evidence for an LVF advantage in time-sensitive attentional tasks and further contradict the subjective experience of homogenous temporal precision across the visual field. Expand
An Empirical Evaluation of Visuo-Haptic Feedback on Physical Reaching Behaviors During 3D Interaction in Real and Immersive Virtual Environments
The results suggest that physical reach responses vary systematically between real and virtual environments, especially in situations involving the presence or absence of visuo-haptic feedback. Expand
Subtle gaze direction
A novel technique that combines eye-tracking with subtle image-space modulation to direct a viewer's gaze about a digital image has potential application in many areas including large scale display systems, perceptually adaptive rendering, and complex visual search tasks. Expand
A toolkit for managing user attention in peripheral displays
This work presents the Peripheral Displays Toolkit (PTK), a toolkit that provides structured support for managing user attention in the development of peripheral displays and describes the toolkit architecture and five sample peripheral displays demonstrating its capabilities. Expand
Evaluating multimodal driver displays of varying urgency
Two experiments investigating all multimodal combinations of Audio, Visual and Tactile warnings for drivers along three different levels of designed urgency found that warnings of high urgency induced quicker and more accurate responses than warnings of medium and of low urgency. Expand
