Eye-movement research is not a new topic. Fixation, saccade, smooth
pursuit and blinking are of great interest to researchers and are widely
studied. We are interested in how the saccade eye movement can be used
in VR research and how to estimate the human eye gaze position (point of
regard) in a dynamic situation (the head is not stationary).
We use the EL-MAR (Vision 2000) eye tracker: a video-based head-mounted
eye tracking system (VTS). Binocular horizontal and vertical eye position
estimates are derived from the relative positions of multiple corneal reflections
and the center of the pupil.
For the head free eye tracking project, InterSense IS900 tracker is used. It is
a Large Area Tracking system, which uses ultrasound and inertial sensors to
determine the position and orientation (6DOF) of trackers within the lab
