The integration of eye tracking and motion capture data allows researchers to analyze the coordination between eye and body movements, which provides a better understanding of an individual's behavior.
Eye tracking data collected from Tobii Pro Glasses 2 can now be synchronized and streamed together with the motion capture data in Qualisys Track Manager (QTM). First, reflective markers are added to the subject's body and onto the eye tracking glasses. Then, the motion capture cameras track the complex movements of these markers and translates them into an extremely accurate, computer-generated 3D wire frame model. This makes it possible to stream data in real time from both systems into the QTM) software, where the data can be visualized and the eye tracking and gaze vector data can be exported to various other analysis software platforms, such as MATLAB.
For an easy and smooth integration of eye tracking data from Tobii Pro Glasses 2 with motion capture data from Qualisys, we offer an Integration Kit.
Combining data from eye tracking and motion capture systems enables research professionals within healthcare, sports, and psychology to obtain the visual strategy behind an athlete's body movements or a patient's search pattern. These powerful analytics can improve sports performance, diagnose visual-motor disorders, or assess progress in gait rehabilitation. Watch the video to see how it works.
Eye tracking insights deliver an understanding of an individual's behavior. When this information is combined with a cognitive workload algorithm it facilitates the measurement of the amount of mental effort generated when performing tasks.
Pupil data collected from Tobii Pro Glasses 2 can now be imported into EyeTracking's EyeWorks™ software which can detect changes in pupil size and plot this on the Index of Cognitive Activity™ (ICA). This index has a value from 0 to 1, where a higher value means a higher workload. With the software, it's possible to run projects with multiple participants and tasks, select specific time segments, and export reports. The output can be presented as a second-by-second value of the cognitive activity during a task, or as an aggregated metric report combining values for all the participants and tasks.
This combination of technologies allows businesses across various industries to better understand how employees cope with particular tasks or deal with large amounts of data and visual information. Apart from real time performance assessments and follow-ups, this knowledge facilitates the optimization of training and onboarding routines to improve an individual's performance.
