  9. 9. EYE TRACKING – THE TECHNOLOGY AND IT’S CHALLENGES2/1/2012 Copyright Tobii Technology AB 9
  10. 10. Eye tracking and eye control – the two sides of thecoin Eye tracking is a technology that makes it possible for computers to know exactly where users are looking. It can be used to control or interact with a computer or to study or monitor what a person is looking at. Eye-controlled communication Eye tracking in usability testing2/1/2012 Copyright Tobii Technology AB 10
  11. 11. Eye tracking technology – how it works The Tobii Eye Tracker estimates the point of gaze with extreme accuracy using image sensor technology to find the user’s eyes and calculates the point of gaze.  One or several near-infrared illuminators, invisible to the human eye, create reflection patterns on the cornea of the eyes.  At high sampling rates, one or multiple image sensors register the image of the user’s eyes.  Image processing is used to find the eyes, detect the exact position of the pupil and/or iris, and identify the correct reflections from the illuminators and their exact positions.  A mathematical model of the eye is used to calculate the eyes’ position in space and the point of gaze.2/1/2012 Copyright Tobii Technology AB 11
  12. 12. The advantage of Tobii’s eye tracking technology Core values that meet the highest demands  Accurate and precise – the eye tracker can tell exactly where you are looking.  Unrestrained and unobtrusive – the user can move freely in front of the eye tracker and is not distracted by it.  Capable of robust tracking – regardless of eye color, with glasses, contact lenses, ambient light etc.  Easy to use and automatic – anyone can use eye tracking quickly and easily.2/1/2012 Copyright Tobii Technology AB 12
  13. 13. Eye tracking brings unique benefits to a multitudeof fields of use and will become a future standardConsumer computers – eye control Research – Tobii’s eye trackers Augmented communication – Tobii’swill fundamentally revolutionize user provide deep, objective insight into eye-controlled communication devicesinterfaces to standard computers, and consumer responses, UX and human give a voice and language to peoplemake interaction faster, more fun and behavior with communication impairmentsmore relaxingGaming – Eye control and gaze Driver safety – eye tracking in cars Hospitals and sterile environmentsinteraction takes immersion and game will improve safety by detecting – eye control enable surgeons tointensity to a new level drowsiness and distraction, and maintain sterility and improve the enable hands-free interaction conditions in collaborative surgery13

  16. 16. Tobii’s vision – eye tracking in our everyday lives A standard feature adding unique and strong benefits  In consumer computers  In driver safety systems  In a multitude of other applications2/1/2012 Copyright Tobii Technology AB 16
  17. 17. Eye tracking in every computer will revolutionizethe way we interact with computers Gaze interaction will fundamentally revolutionize the user interface to standard computers Eye control provide unique and powerful aspects to Natural User Interfaces that are not possible in any other way  Adaptive user interfaces – through gaze interaction, the computer automatically and invisibly detect the user’s attention. Thus, the computer can respond much more effectively and intuitively to serve the user in an almost magical way.  A super-effective position modality – “Gaze” allows the user to point in a super effective and intuitive way. The combination of “gaze” for pointing and other modalities for issuing commands is extremely powerful.2/1/2012 Copyright Tobii Technology AB 17
  18. 18. Eye tracking in every car will have a huge impacton driver safety Car safety will take a leap forward with “The continued development of eye-tracking sensors that monitor the driver, and detect systems is big news in the auto industry. if the driver is falling asleep, not paying Moving beyond the detection of simple head movement, actually following the driver’s eye attention to the road or fails to see objects gaze is a key piece of the inattentive driving in front of the car. jigsaw.” The same sensors can be used to identify Vision Zero Magazine, June 2011 the driver and add intuitive and exciting interfaces to the car information system.2/1/2012 Copyright Tobii Technology AB 18
