(PDF 4,669.1 kb)
Head-mounted eye-tracking (E-T) technology allows for monitoring and recording people’s eye movements in a completely unobtrusive fashion. It has been effectively used to accelerate human behavior research in a wide variety of areas. Motivated by the growing importance/applications of head-mounted eye tracking technology, this work provides a comprehensive review for researchers who are trying to find the most effective strategies for their research and applications. The goal of the paper is to provide the reader with a survey of state-of-art head-mounted eye tracking technology, present commercially available wearable eye tracking equipment, software solutions for eye tracking data analysis techniques reported in the literature, and large-scale eye tracking data visualization methods for researchers from varying backgrounds. Example applications adopting head-mounted eye tracking are described, such as human-machine interaction, cognitive psychology, medical applications, and augmented reality. Finally, discussion of limitations and expectations for headmounted eye tracking analysis methodology is also investigated.

  • For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
