  3. 3. EYE TRACKING TECHNOLOGY:This technology is the first non-intrusive technology of capturing visual attention and emotional response.Eye tracking is primarily used to measure eye gaze, but can also measure the pupil size and blinks with highprecision. These parameters reflect, amongst other, the immediate emotional response and may indicate interestin the subject of attention.Eye blink rate and pupil dilation have been found to be indicators of cognitive processing as well as the level ofemotional arousal.How the technology works: • The eye tracker has sensors of the monitor where it tracks every detail of your eye. This includes pupil dilation, blink pattern, amplitude of blink, gaze pattern. • Initially before testing any stimulus the eyes are calibrated by following a red dot on the screen and focusing on a cross in the center of the screen. • The eye tracker tracks the “gaze” of a consumer looking at a product, brand, ad, billboard or website exposed in a natural environment • The technology calculates the time spent on specific point s called the “Areas of Interest (AOI)” or singularly, Attention Point and also the emotional involvement of the user • The importance of the AOI is determined by the total time spent on the point and the number of visits • For brands, the attention points should ideally be “communication cues” or “points of action” that increase the willingness to enhance brand retention • The data collection starts with a gaze calibration of the respondent. After a successful gaze calibration, the respondent is told that a series of pictures would be displayed for an equal amount of time. Before the stimulus image, though, there was a series of five Focus Suites Solutions & Services Pvt. Ltd. intensity images (experienced as grey noise) for light calibration purposeSpotlight: The Spotlight shows the distribution of attention with the help of a semi-transparent layer superimposed on the stimulus. Areas which attracted much attention are more transparent than those which attracted little attention. The areas which attracted the most attention are classified as Attention Points. Results: Attention Point: Each Attention Point contains a red circle in its ‘center of attention’ (where the most attention was focused) with a number inside. This number indicates the sequence in which the Attention Point was visited based on the Hit Time. The first area the respondents visited first (the one with the lowest Hit Time) is given the number 1, the second is given number 2 etc. Highlight: The Highlight feature enables users to select certain areas manually, and generate results for them. This feature is particularly useful when the user needs to know whether a specific area like a logo, tag line, message, specific parts of the stimulus etc. has attracted enough attention or not. Result: Highlight has a green square with a number inside marking the center 160, L.B.S. Road, Kurla (West), Mumbai – 400 071 India Ph: - (+91 22) 2654 0721 www.focus-suites.com 3

The area the respondents visited first (the one with the lowest Hit Time) is assignednumber 1, the second is assigned number 2 etc.Results are calculated for each Attention Point, and they are shown on little yellow ‘sticky’ notes:Statistical output:The emotional response is evaluated for a stimulus exposed to a group of no less than 10 valid Respondents. It isrecommended to use at least 30 respondents of the same gender to evaluate the average arousal level for thestimulus. In Emotion Tool the arousal measure is referred to as Emotional Involvement, indicating the strengthof the emotion being elicited to the presented stimulus.The average arousal or the Emotional Involvement tells how strong an emotional reaction the groupexperienced on average to the exposed stimulus. The scale is linear and range from zero, indicating no reaction,to ten, indicating a strong emotional response.The 95% confidence interval of the Emotional Involvement is given in the user interface of the software.Additional statistical information is provided in a tabulated text file output, including the 95% and 90%confidence intervals, the standard deviation of the Emotional Involvement and number of validrespondents. This information can be used to make further statistical tests and compare results betweenstudies and segments.Affectivity is calculated from the individual arousal estimate. It indicates how big a fraction of therespondents experienced a strong emotional response (arousal ≥ 5) when exposed to the stimulus.When comparing two stimuli, it is interesting to know if the given average arousal estimate for the stimuliare significantly different or not. One way to get an indication about this is to compare the confidenceintervals and see if they overlap.A more reliable method is to perform a test of significance to investigate if there is a significant differencebetween the average arousal estimates of the stimuli. Emotion Tool provides a comparison matrix for alltested stimuli Focus Suites Solutions & Services Pvt. Ltd. 160, L.B.S.
