Listen to What you Look at: Combining an Audio Guide with a Mobile Eye Tracker on the Go

 

Eye tracking can be an easy way for identifying users' focus of attention and interests. This promise triggered large and continues research and technology development efforts with remarkable results. In the CH setting, visitors' movement in space, time spent, information requested, vocal interaction and orientation were used for inferring users’ interest in museum exhibits. Adding eye gaze as additional source may greatly enhance the ability to pinpoint the user’s focus of attention and interest (e.g. on products or exhibits), hence improve the ability to model the user and better personalize the service offered to her/him.

The talk will present a work about exploring the potential contribution of using mobile eye tracking technology in enhancing the museum visit experience, and how to integrate a mobile eye-tracker into a museum visitors’ guide system, so to relive the visitor from explicitly requesting information about objects of interest. A system has been developed and it was evaluated in a user study in a realistic setting.
