Implicit Calibration Using Probable Fixation Targets
AbstractProper calibration of eye movement signal registered by an eye tracker seems to be one of the main challenges in popularizing eye trackers as yet another user-input device. Classic calibration methods taking time and imposing unnatural behavior on eyes must be replaced by intelligent methods that are able to calibrate the signal without conscious cooperation by the user. Such an implicit calibration requires some knowledge about the stimulus a user is looking at and takes into account this information to predict probable gaze targets. This paper describes a possible method to perform implicit calibration: it starts with finding probable fixation targets (PFTs), then it uses these targets to build a mapping-probable gaze path. Various algorithms that may be used for finding PFTs and mappings are presented in the paper and errors are calculated using two datasets registered with two different types of eye trackers. The results show that although for now the implicit calibration provides results worse than the classic one, it may be comparable with it and sufficient for some applications. View Full-Text
