Eye tracking is frequently employed in this field to evaluate success, compare novices versus experts, develop effective training protocols, and evaluate cognitive strategy.
For the vast majority of physical movement tasks, visual behavior and human performance are closely linked. In the study of biomechanics, eye tracking is a valuable tool to gain insight into how different individuals gather cognitive information and perform tasks. This methodology is used in areas like sports research, sports psychology, training evaluation, and novice versus expert studies.

By understanding the visual aspects of task completion, researchers can identify causes for performance gaps and define appropriate improvements to human output.
In this video, Prof. Dr. Guido Ellert from the Macromedia University of Applied Science in Munich, Germany, explains how he uses eye tracking in order to obtain insights into human behavior.

Under the name Vision in Motion (VIM), several researchers from different areas of sports science combined their existing research constructs to study perceptual-cognitive expertise in surfing using both eye tracking and motion analysis technology. The insights obtained can help enhance the performance of athletes by optimizing their perception and action patterns. Read more
In this study conducted by the Swiss Ice Hockey Association, eye tracking was used to study gaze behavior during the physical task of shooting in ice hockey. The study generated new insights into the gaze behavior of successful shooters, which will be used to develop shooting techniques and training methods to maintain progress in shooting skills.
