The S2 Mirametrix eye tracker provides new insight into how people process and interact with visual information. The eye tracker is non-intrusive, creating a natural environment for the research participant. The information gathered from the eye tracker can be used for eye tracking research, as well as research that analyzes human behavior and patterns.
Fields of Research
- Psychology – Eye movements provide objective data on how subjects perceive the world and how they react to stimuli.
- Neuroscience – Eye tracking devices combined with with physiological data such as brain imaging, can help identify how the information is processed in the brain. Eye tracking can be used to analyze visual development and link it to developmental aspects of neurological functions, neurological diseases and brain damage.
- Reading research – Reading patterns can be cross referenced with different demographics of people and therefore provide insight into how they gather information.
- Computer science – Human computer interaction allows users to input information in a more natural way into their computers. Eye tracking can be used as a control medium, like moving the cursor and clicking on icons on the screen, as well as creating adaptive user interfaces, where the computer reacts to the eye gaze of the user and creates an interactive environment.
- Psycholinguistics – Using eye tracking can help analyze how people acquire, comprehend and use language. Eye tracking can also be used in translation process studies.
- Sports Research – Eye tracking is great for coaches who want to train their players on effectively gathering information from the field through simulations.
- Training and Learning Research – Learning to analyze an environment quickly can be a valuable skill in air traffic control, radar control, medical X-ray examinations, video surveillance, industrial process control, driving, army or police field work, surgical training and others. Teaching this skill through simulations using an eye tracker can eliminate the time-consuming process of only learning it with experience .
The Mirametrix S2 Eye Tracker can be the perfect compliment in a number of academic and scientific studies. Eye tracking can provide added data and new analytical possibilities when studying human behavior and actions.
- Professor Andrew Duchowski (Clemson University) has been using the eye tracker for over a year on a variety of projects. He provided a case study here: Easy Eye Tracking with Flexible Eye Tracker API
