Multimodal Validation of Facial Expression Detection Software for Real-time Monitoring of Affect in Patients with Suicidal Intent
Abstract: Facial expression is an independent and objective marker of affect. Basic emotions (fear, sadness, joy, anger, disgust and surprise) have been shown to be universal across human cultures. Techniques such as the Facial Action Coding System can capture emotion with good reliability. Such techniques visually process the changes in different assemblies of facial muscles that produce […]
The use of eye tracking in research on video-based second language (L2) listening assessment: A comparison of context videos and content videos
Abstract: Investigating how visuals affect test takers’ performance on video-based L2 listening tests has been the focus of many recent studies. While most existing research has been based on test scores and self-reported verbal data, few studies have examined test takers’ viewing behavior (Ockey, 2007; Wagner, 2007, 2010a). To address this gap, in the present […]
Exploring the influence of audio in directing visual attention during dynamic content
Abstract: The mechanisms underlying the allocation of visual attention toward dynamic content are still largely unexplored. Due to the number of variables present during dynamic content, it is often difficult to confidently determine what components direct visual attention. In this study, we manipulated the presence of audio in an attempt to explore the contribution of […]
Dynamic Data Driven Operator Error Early Warning System
Abstract: Mitigating human errors is a priority in the design of complex systems, especially through the use of body area networks. This paper describes early developments of a dynamic data driven platform to predict operator error and trigger appropriate intervention before the error happens. Using a two-stage process, data was collected using several sensors (e.g. […]
Emergency, Automation Off: Unstructured Transition Timing for Distracted Drivers of Automated Vehicles
Abstract: In future automated driving systems, drivers will be free to perform other secondary tasks, not needing to stay vigilant in monitoring the car’s activity. However, there will still be situations in which drivers are required to take-over control of the vehicle, most likely from a highly distracted state. While highly automated vehicles would ideally […]
Timing of Unstructured Transitions of Control in Automated Driving
Abstract: With automated driving systems, drivers may still be expected to resume full control of the vehicle. While structured transitions where drivers are given warning are desirable, it is critical to benchmark how drivers perform when transition of control is unstructured and occurs without advanced warning. In this study, we observed how participants (N=27) in […]
Differences in eye-tracking measures between visits and revisits to relevant and irrelevant Web pages
Abstract: This short paper presents initial results from a project, in which we investigated differences in how users view relevant and irrelevant Web pages on their visits and revisits. The users’ viewing of Web pages was characterized by eye-tracking measures, with a particular attention paid to changes in pupil size. The data was collected in […]
Reducing Sketch Inhibition During Concept Generation: Psychophysiological Evidence of the Effect of Interventions
Abstract: This research investigated the effect of warm-up activities on cognitive states during concept generation. Psychophysiological tools including electroencephalography (EEG) and galvanic skin response (GSR) were used along with self-report measures (NASA TLX). Participants were divided into 3 test conditions: 1) no warm-up activity; 2) simple warm-up activities; 3) sketch-inhibition reducing activities. All participants did […]
Dynamic Data Driven Approach for Modeling Human Error
Abstract: Mitigating human errors is a priority in the design of complex systems, especially through the use of body area networks. This paper describes early developments of a dynamic data driven platform to predict operator error and trigger appropriate intervention before the error happens. Using a two-stage process, data was collected using several sensors (e.g., […]
Understanding The Utilization Of Information Stimuli in Design Decision Making Using Eye Gaze Data
Abstract: Research on decision making in engineering design has focused primarily on how to make decisions using normative models given certain information. However, there exists a research gap on how diverse information stimuli are combined by designers in decision making. In this paper, we address the following question: how do designers weigh different information stimuli to […]
