Working group mEyeInt
- © FG MMS
The working group mEyeInt (multimodal eye interaction) explores facilities of supporting and amplifying gaze interaction in human-machine systems. Research is focussed on augmenting gaze interaction at further modalities (e.g. gestures, speech, BCI) to override or at least dilute technique-generated problems and constraints, and moreover to investigates potential interactions between different modalities. Especially, human abilities and limitations in using gaze active systems as well as changes in user behavior when dealing with such systems are addressed.
The main goal of the working group consists in an interdisciplinary investigation on novel forms of human-machine interaction and the development of prototypic demonstrators gaining insight into this fascinating scope of research. That way the transfer of basic university research into applied research and industrial applications is provided.
The working group comprises an interdisciplinary team of researchers from psychology, engineering sciences and computer science, design and related disciplines, closely cooperating with representatives and researchers from industrial contexts, e.g. gaze recording, consumer electronics and automotive industry.
Students from various disciplines are invited to participate within the field of gaze interaction. Regarding further information, please get in touch with a contact person.
The working group is funded by the Chair of Human-Machine Systems.
