What are you looking at?

A few years ago I was involved in a research program with a vehicle equipped with many different systems including eye tracking.  At the time the vehicle needed to be a station wagon so we could fit the massive computer systems in it.

The systems all worked well and the eye tracking system proved to be very informative.  We observed many things about driver distraction and what gets drivers attention.  Note: if you ever find yourself as the subject of eye tracking be aware they can be very accurate and where you look at people can end up to be fairly embarrassing as the systems can be very accurate.

We keep track of this technology as we believe it would be useful for driver training and getting a clearer Biometric footprint on what makes a driver faster.  Seeing exactly what a driver is looking at, how far up the road can give a good indication why some drivers are faster than others.

The current technology's form factor and costs still leave room for a more effective Motorsport solution hopefully available in the near future.  Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions on eye tracking systems.
