VR Eye Tracking

VR Eye Tracking – From zero to experiment in 6 minutes

Organizer: Lucero (Sado) Rabaudi, Worldviz VR

Speakers: Andy Beall, Worldviz and Sado Rabaudi, Worldviz VR

WorldvizVR will teach you how to setup and perform eye tracking studies in VR with Vizard and Python. At the end of this session you’ll be able to insert your own 3D geometry, generate 3D visualizations of the scene and gaze path, extract gaze intersects as well as saving out of raw data and modify using your own target objects and parameters by editing just a few lines of code. We provide Matlab, numpy, and matplotlib sample code for you to do it yourself. 

The presentation and teaching will be provided as a remote meeting with screen sharing, and a live camera view will allow you to observe the eye tracker setup and operation for leading vendor’s eye tracked HMDs.

If you have your own laptop with a Windows operating system (or a Windows Parallels Desktop for MAC users)  available for this session,  you’ll be able to create your own project from start to finish in the remaining 54 minutes.

VR Eye Tracking – Meeting in VR to Experience and Discuss Concepts, Setups and Analytics Options

Organizer: Lucero (Sado) Rabaudi, Worldviz VR

Speakers: Andy Beall, Worldviz VR, Sado Rabaudi, Worldviz VR, Matthias Pusch, WorldViz VR and Dan Tinkham, WorldViz VR

NOTE: There will be two options to participate:

  1. SCREEN SHARE: Participants without VR gear can watch the VR session over screen share.
  2. IN VR: Meeting participation in VR requires sign up before the event.
    Participants of the VR meetings will require a game capable windows-based computer with Oculus Rift HMD, VIVE HMD or Windows Mixed Reality HMD.

In this session, participants will be able to discuss and experience a simulated eye tracking setup in a fully immersive VR world. Analytics options for VR eye tracking data will be shown and can be discussed between the participating researchers. Each VR session will have a WorldViz expert explaining components and functionalities of a typical setup and participants can experience and discuss between each other their concepts and ideas for how such an eye tracking setup can be used.  

Experiencing the power of VR firsthand is an eye-opening experience for all who have not experienced this yet. 

We hope that this session will allow to A) discuss concepts, setups and analytics options for VR eye tracking, but also will B) show all participants how natural interaction in VR environments can look and feel like, and how well it works for a social interactive setting in a smaller group of participants.
