Eye Tracking in Sunlight and Brightly Lit Rooms - No Problem with the new EyeTech TM5 mini eye tracker
FINALLY!! Someone heard my plea. I have been searching desperately to find a speech generating device that was small, fast, and was not affected by light. After trying several possibilities, I was left with using either switch scanning, morse code, or other low tech options. None of the cameras used for eye tracking worked outside or in variable lighting.
When I used the Eyetech TM5 mini outdoors for the first time, I was amazed how well it worked. Even the accuracy seemed much improved over my previous camera. I also used it in my family room in the late afternoon where I was always having a problem with too much sun and reflection. Now I no longer need blinds, curtains, or pillows in the window. My caregivers thank you!
At the University of West Bohemian, Pilsen, Czech Republic, Tereza Formáková from the Faculty of Economics compared classic user testing with the eye tracking testing of websites.
For the documentation and analysis of the eye tracking part of the study, theMangoldVision eye tracking system was used, including the VT3 mini eye tracker and the analysis software MangoldVision.
At the University of West Bohemian, Pilsen, Czech Republic, an interesting comparison of different e-shops was performed with MangoldVision. Daniela Vlková from the Faculty of Economics used eye tracking to demonstrate the advantages of this technology for the improvement of the tested e-shops.

Astra products, who provides the front filter material for EyeTech eye trackers, invited us to demonstrate our eye tracking technology at their booth during the Display Week conference.
Markets showing interest included automotive, medical, wearables, and much more. We showed off a cool eye controlled automotive HUD which required no calibration. This which was designed by our UI motion control software partner Quantum Interface. We also demonstrated an eye controlled VR headset controlling Netflix movies with only your eyes and much more. I even ran into someone working on the Microsoft Hololens and had a chance to try out their cool gesture controlled AR headset and was impressed with how responsive it was. Overall, touch displays are the most common but there was great interest in eye tracking technology as a natural user interface for a completely touchless experience.
