  • Understanding Drivers’ Physiological Responses in Different Road Conditions

    GatedPeer-Reviewed16/06/2022University of Missouri

    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, […]

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

    Open AccessPeer-Reviewed11/06/2022University of Virginia + 2

    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 […]

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

    Open AccessPeer-Reviewed27/05/2022Johns Hopkins University + 2

    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 […]

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

    Open AccessPeer-Reviewed16/05/2022University of St Gallen

    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 […]

  • Eye Tracking on Shopfloors for User Engagement with Automation

    Open AccessPeer-Reviewed30/04/2022University of St Gallen + 2

    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 […]

  • Emotional Empathy and Facial Mimicry of Avatar Faces

    GatedPeer-Reviewed20/04/2022Western Connecticut State University + 3

    We explore the extent to which empathetic reactions are elicited when subjects view 3D motion-capture driven avatar faces compared to viewing human faces. Through a remote study, we captured subjects’ facial reactions when viewing avatar and humans faces, and elicited self reported feedback regarding empathy. Avatar faces varied by gender and realism. Results show no […]

  • Exploiting Micro Facial Expressions for More Inclusive User Interfaces

    Open AccessPeer-Reviewed17/04/2022Roma Tre University

    Current image/video acquisition and analysis techniques allow for not only the identification and classification of objects in a scene but also more sophisticated processing. For example, there are video cameras today able to capture micro facial expressions, namely, facial expressions that occur in a fraction of a second. Such micro expressions can provide useful information […]

  • Archetypal physiological responses to prolonged wakefulness

    GatedPeer-Reviewed14/04/2022Naval Submarine Medical Research Laboratory + 2

    Acute sleep deprivation is a common workplace and lifestyle hazard known to affect physiological and cognitive performance. Previous research emphasizes the effect that sleep deprivation has on cognitive performance and often correlates changes in physiological parameters to measured performance. One potential problem with this approach is that there is some ambiguity about the true physiological […]

  • Can Eye Tracking Identify Prognostic Markers for Learning Disabilities? A Preliminary Study

    GatedPeer-Reviewed09/04/2022University of Ioannina

    Eye tracking is a promising technology offering objective metrics quantifying visual attention in various application fields. The employment in people with specific learning disabilities (SLDs), who reportedly manifest long-term functional social, emotional, and behavioral difficulties, provided well understandings of their visual attention, detecting cognitive processing mechanisms regarding specific SLD patterns. This study focuses on investigating […]

  • Electrodermal Activity Evaluation of Player Experience in Virtual Reality Games: A Phasic Component Analysis

    GatedPeer-Reviewed01/04/2022Blekinge Institute of Technology

    Electrodermal activity (EDA) is considered to be an effective metric for measuring changes in the arousal level of people. In this paper, the phasic component of EDA data from players is analyzed in relation to their reported experience from a standardized questionnaire, when interacting with a couple of virtual reality games that featured two different […]
