Dr Mary Hayhoe, who will this week be honored by the Vision Science Society at its annual meeting in St Pete Beach Florida, says the widespread uptake of immersive research using modified VR headsets is set to spark a new wave of innovation in research techniques and treatment methods.
Coinciding with the Annual Meeting of the Vision Science Society in St Pete Beach, Florida this month, SMI is proud to welcome three highly respected guest speakers to its special symposium “New VR & Immersive Eye Tracking Tools and their Implications for Vision Science Research”.
Ahead of the CeBIT 2017 technology show in Hannover Germany, the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) and Japanese engineering giant Hitachi have announced the joint-development of AI technology for “human activity recognition of workers using wearable devices”. Specifically, this means workers wearing motion sensors in the form of an armband, and SMI Eye Tracking Glasses.
Google has taken up the challenge of turning the virtual reality experience into a shared experience by making the headset disappear – Google headset removal – allowing others to see the person behind the mask while they enjoy immersive worlds.
Following years of extensive research and development SensoMotoric Instruments (SMI) launches a whole new generation of high performance eye trackers for all research areas with high quality data needs. The new SMI iView 2K platform delivers up to 2000 Hz true binocular tracking and can be deployed in remote, chinrest and MRI modes.
