  • Evaluation of Cyclist Galvanic Skin Response and Visual Attention in Commercial Vehicle Loading Zones

    Open AccessOregon State University 08/08/2022

    With growing freight operations throughout the world, there is a push for transportation systems to accommodate trucks during loading and unloading operations. Currently, many urban locations do not provide loading and unloading zones, which results in trucks parking in places that obstruct bicyclist’s roadway infrastructure (e.g., bicycle lanes). To understand the implications of these truck […]

  • Gaze Behaviors of Neurosurgeon in Performing Gross Movements under Microscope

    GatedUniversity of Alberta 01/08/2022

    Frequent intermittent bleeding control and suction are often necessary during micro-neurosurgical procedures. We compared the visual searching strategy that guides these types of gross hand movements between expert surgeons and neurosurgical residents. A total of 70 trials of a microsurgical task consisting of moving a cotton ball with bipolar forceps and a suction instrument under […]

  • Work-in-progress-Gamifying the process of Learning Sign Language in VR

    GatedUniversity of Westminster + 211/07/2022

    This study recognizes the need for providing a tool to facilitate learning British Sign Language (BSL). Virtual reality coupled with gamification holds exciting prospects to accommodate this need. This paper presents a work-in-progress study that focuses on evaluating the impact of combining scaffolded instruction with gamification to design a 3D interactive game to support learning […]

  • Investigating the relationship between facial mimicry and empathy

    Open Access11/07/2022

    Facial expressions play a key role in interpersonal communication when it comes to negotiating our emotions and intentions, as well as interpreting those of others. Research has shown that we can connect to other people better when we exhibit signs of empathy and facial mimicry. However, the relationship between empathy and facial mimicry is still […]

  • Visual Tailoring and Skin Cancer Prevention: Comparing Personalized, Stock, and Non-Ultraviolet Images

    GatedBrigham Young University + 228/06/2022

    Past research has demonstrated that ultraviolet (UV) photos – which reveal skin damage as dark patches – can increase preventive behaviors. Emerging camera technology facilitates personalized UV photos for interventions, yet little is known about how personalized photos compare to other visuals and what cognitive or affective mechanism explains their persuasive impact. To engage this […]

  • Estimating Developers’ Cognitive Load at a Fine-grained Level Using Eye-tracking Measures

    Open AccessUniversity of St Gallen16/05/2022

    The comprehension of source code is a task inherent to many software development activities. Code change, code review and debugging are examples of these activities that depend heavily on developers’ understanding of the source code. This ability is threatened when developers’ cognitive load approaches the limits of their working memory, which in turn affects their […]

  • Understanding Drivers’ Physiological Responses in Different Road Conditions

    GatedUniversity of Missouri 16/06/2022

    Although the driver’s emotion has been studied in the different driving environments (such as city and highway), understanding what eye metrics and facial expressions correspond to specific emotion and behavior based on subjective and biosensor data to study emotion in depth is not well researched in previous studies. Using an eye-integrated human-in-the-loop (HTIL) simulation experiment, […]

  • The Utility of Synthetic Reflexes and Haptic Feedback for Upper-Limb Prostheses in a Dexterous Task Without Direct Vision

    Open AccessJohns Hopkins University + 227/05/2022

    Individuals who use myoelectric upper-limb prostheses often rely heavily on vision to complete their daily activities. They thus struggle in situations where vision is overloaded, such as multitasking, or unavailable, such as poor lighting conditions. Non-amputees can easily accomplish such tasks due to tactile reflexes and haptic sensation guiding their upper-limb motor coordination. Based on […]

  • How are Drivers’ Stress Levels and Emotions Associated with the Driving Context? A Naturalistic Study

    Open AccessUniversity of Virginia + 211/06/2022

    Understanding and mitigating drivers’ negative emotions, stress levels, and anxiety is of high importance for decreasing accident rates, enhancing road safety, and providing a healthy lifestyle to the community of drivers. While detecting drivers’ stress and negative emotions can significantly help with this goal, understanding what might be associated with increases in drivers’ negative emotions […]

  • Eye Tracking on Shopfloors for User Engagement with Automation

    Open AccessUniversity of St Gallen + 230/04/2022

    Mixed Reality (MR) is becoming an integral part of many context-aware industrial applications. In maintenance and remote support operations, the individual steps of computer-supported (cooperative) work can be defined and presented to human operators through MR headsets. Tracking of eye movements can provide valuable insights into a user’s decision-making and interaction processes. Thus, our overarching […]
