Abstract:

We propose to demonstrate that eye slaved cursor control, using an eye tracker device, is a viable and potentially more valuable man-machine interface than current manual cursor control techniques. This control technique can provide potentially higher bandwidth cursor control, while minimizing pilot attention when compared to manual control techniques. We will demonstrate concept feasibility with a demonstration in a laboratory situation which incorporates the ergonomic and operationally relevant components of the fighter cockpit application. These components include display visual angles, information density, information type, type of cursor control task, and pilot feedback. After demonstrating feasibility, we will address all technology issues pertaining to the militarization of the concept, and prepare a program plan for prototyping a flyable, eye tracker based, cursor controller.
