SMI Eye Tracking HMD based on HTC Vive

Background image

Perform immersive, scientific grade research. Gaze information is collected at 250 Hz alongside head and body posture information.

Features

360° immersive environments allow full control over all experimental parameters in the immersive scenario and hence allow large comparative studies to be conducted with ease with life-like perception. The use of directional sound also enhances attention studies.

Surround participants with 360° image, video and audio stimuli

Creating an immersive research environment is now easier than ever. Something as simple as a 360° still image or video – taken by a 360° camera – can be imported and become stimulus content. Experiment Suite HMD allows complex experimental scenes to be created with randomized stimulus presentation. Text elements can be included to instruct the participant.

The eye tracking HTC Vive comes with a software developer kit and plug-ins for popular VR engines such as Unity, Unreal and WorldViz Vizard. Used this way it is possible to access live gaze information and create interactive scenarios such as gaze contingent communication with avatars which react on eye contact.
