Expert insights into using wearable eye trackers for scientific research

Explore how wearable eye tracking is being used by scientists and researchers in their studies to enhance their understanding of human behavior. Key areas of application include traffic safety, professional training, physics education and driving research.

Eye tracking for training: challenges and solutions

Speaker: Michael Hildebrandt - Institute for Energy Technology, Norway

In his presentation, Michael will talk about the experiences from working with an airline pilot training center over a three-year period with the aim to identify why, when and how eye tracking should be used in training programs. He will also share feedback from instructor workshops, as well as a test installation of mobile eye tracking glasses in a cockpit simulator, illustrating how meaningful real-time gaze measures can be obtained in such an environment.

Mobile eye tracking in physics education research

Speaker: Dr. Stefan Küchemann - TU Kaiserslautern, Germany

Dr. Küchemann will show how mobile eye tracking extends the range of possible eye-tracking applications in physics education research and demonstrate underlying visual strategies during the generation process of visual representations and during experimentation. In the latter use case, he will explore how a machine-learning-based object-detection algorithm can be used for an efficient analysis of mobile eye-tracking data.

Road user eye tracking in traffic safety research

Speakers: Chiara Gruden, Matej Moharić - Faculty of Civil Engineering, Transportation Engineering and Architecture, University of Maribor, Slovenia

Chiara and Matej will present two applications of Tobii Pro Glasses 2, for the study of factors influencing road user’s behavior and their reaction time. In their study, they have firstly focused on analyzing the elements that attract and distract motorcyclists on a specifically chosen road segment and on vulnerable road users, as a second step, i.e. pedestrians and the inference of their reaction time and road crossings.

The influence of musical features and priming on visual perception

Speakers: Dr. Jörg Mühlhans - University of Vienna, Austria

This study investigates the influence of music on gaze behavior, as well as the visual information on musical perception by means of various manipulations. Apart from the hypothesis that the musical tempo might have an influence on the duration of fixations and the dress color might influence the perception of loudness, tempo, or professionalism, a lot of other interesting effects have been discovered through exploratory data analysis. 

Assessing the attentional effects of cognitive load in driving environments

Speaker: Dr. Kristina Stojmenova - University of Ljubljana, Slovenia

Distracted driving or the diversion of attention away from activities critical for safe driving toward a competing activity is still one of the major causes of road accidents. In this presentation, Dr. Kristina Stojmenova will share the approaches to assessment of the driver’s exogenous and endogenous distraction using pupillometry collected with Tobii Pro Glasses 2.

Eye tracking research in context, practical considerations for researchers

Speaker: Laurens van den Broek, Research Services Manager at Tobii Pro Insight

Laurens gives an introduction to wearable eye tracking, examples of applications, practical considerations for real-world research and best case practices from Tobii Pro Insight Research Services.
