Eye Tracking in Human-Machine-Systems
Why can gaze interaction be considered an important method in the context of Human-Machine-Systems? How can eye-movements be measured? Which conclusions can be drawn from the data? These and other questions will be answered in the integrated course "Eye Tracking in Human-Machine Systems".
In the lectures biological and physiological fundamentals of vision as well as fundamentals of cognitive psychology and perception will be taught. Based on this, a broad variety of Eye Tracking methods and parameters of eye- and gaze movements will be introduced. Moreover, areas of application in Human-Machine Interaction and other contexts (e.g. gaze interaction) will be discussed.
In the applied part students will explore Eye Tracking systems available at the Chair of Human-Machine Systems, conduct experiments and analyze gaze data with different tools.
Our final goal is to provide comprehensive insight in possibilities and constraints of Eye Tracking and qualify students for autonomous research within this field.
This course is offered every winter term and takes place on Tuesdays from 09 a.m. to 01 p.m. The course is taught in German. If you are interested in Eye Tracking but unable to speak and understand German, please contact Antje Venjakob .
