Eye Tracking Applications
Eye tracking is the ability of some devices to follow the user's eye movements, identifying the direction of his or her gaze.
Interfaces based on eye-tracking are therefore perceptive interfaces and, almost always, VBIs (Vision-Based Interfaces). Their applications range from the support to disabled people, for whom they can be of great help, to the integration with ordinary input devices (keyboard and mouse). Furthermore, data obtained from the recording of eye movements are very useful for usability studies of graphical user interfaces (e.g. websites).
Our research activity is focused on the exploitation of eye tracking for the implementation of (explicit and implicit) gaze-based VBIs, the design of different kinds of interfaces and the study of "soft" biometric solutions.
