  • Wearable Gaze Trackers: Mapping Visual Attention in 3D

    Open Access19/05/2017Technical University of Denmark + 2

    Abstract: The study of visual attention in humans relates to a wide range of areas such as: psychology, cognition, usability, and marketing. These studies have been limited to fixed setups with respondents sitting in front of a monitor mounted with a gaze tracking device. The introduction of wearable mobile gaze trackers allows respondents to move freely […]

  • Workflows and individual differences during visually guided routine tasks in a road traffic management control room

    Open AccessPeer-Reviewed01/05/2017University of Birmingham

    Road traffic control rooms rely on human operators to monitor and interact with information presented on multiple displays. Past studies have found inconsistent use of available visual information sources in such settings across different domains. In this study, we aimed to broaden the understanding of observer behaviour in control rooms by analysing a case study […]

  • Role of Accentuation in the Selection/Rejection Task Framing Effect

    GatedPeer-Reviewed01/04/2017New Mexico State University + 2

    Abstract: Procedure invariance is a basic assumption of rational theories of choice, however, it has been shown to be violated: Different response modes, or task frames, sometimes reveal opposite preferences. The current study focused on selection and rejection task frames, involving a unique type of problem with enriched and impoverished options, which has previously led […]

  • Psychophysiological Responses to Short-Term Cooling During a Simulated Monotonous driving task

    GatedPeer-Reviewed20/02/2017Technical University Chemnitz + 2

    Abstract:  For drivers on monotonous routes, cognitive fatigue causes discomfort and poses an important risk for traffic safety. Countermeasures against this type of fatigue are required and thermal stimulation is one intervention method. Surprisingly, there are hardly studies available to measure the effect of cooling while driving. Hence, to better understand the effect of short-term cooling […]

  • Maternal gaze to the infant face: Effects of infant age and facial configuration during mother-infant engagement in the first nine weeks

    GatedPeer-Reviewed01/02/2017University of Reading + 5

    Background: Adult gaze plays an important role in early infant development, and infants are highly sensitive to its presence and direction. Little is known, however, about how adults look at infants while interacting with them. Using eye-tracking technology, this study investigated maternal gaze during naturalistic interactions, and how it was influenced by infant age, focusing on […]

  • Positive Affect Is Associated With Reduced Fixation in a Realistic Medical Simulation

    GatedPeer-Reviewed01/02/2017Macquarie University + 3

    Objective: This study extends previous research by exploring the association between mood states (i.e., positive and negative affect) and fixation in practicing anesthetists using a realistic medical simulation. Background: The impact of practitioner emotional states on fixation is a neglected area of research. Emerging evidence is demonstrating the role of positive affect in facilitating problem solving and […]

  • Real-Time Sensing of Trust in Human-Machine Interaction

    Open AccessPeer-Reviewed19/01/2017Purdue University

    Abstract: Human trust in automation plays an important role in successful interactions between humans and machines. To design intelligent machines that can respond to changes in human trust, real-time sensing of trust level is needed. In this paper, we describe an empirical trust sensor model that maps psychophysiological measurements to human trust level. The use of […]

  • What makes a smiling face look happy? Visual saliency, distinctiveness, and affect


    Abstract: We investigated the relative contribution of (a) perceptual (eyes and mouth visual saliency), (b) conceptual or categorical (eye expression distinctiveness), and (c) affective (rated valence and arousal) factors, and (d) specific morphological facial features (Action Units; AUs), to the recognition of facial happiness. The face stimuli conveyed truly happy expressions with a smiling mouth […]

  • HuSIS: A Dedicated Space for Studying Human Interactions


    Abstract: The Human-Surrogate Interaction Space (HuSIS) consists of a dedicated physical space, structures, and components designed specifically for carrying out controlled studies related to human-surrogate interactions. This article discusses the primary factors considered in the HuSIS design and the benefits of the common data-collection and analysis framework for HuSIS research.

  • Automatic expression recognition and expertise prediction in Bharatnatyam


    Abstract: Bharatnatyam is an ancient Indian Classical Dance form consisting of complex postures and expressions. One of the main challenges in this dance form is to perform expression recognition and use the resulting data to predict the expertise of a test dancer. In this paper, expression recognition is carried out for the 6 basic expressions […]
