Abstract
"This project will produce a low-cost, high-performance, minimally invasive eyetracker. This instrument will be relatively inexpensive, easy to use, produce very precise data, and be minimally invasive. It will work on subjects that wear glasses orcontact lenses, and will be supported on conventional PC platforms. It is intended for use in developing advanced training methods which use the cognitive insight provided from eye tracking to construct training methods and procedures that measure studentperformance and prescribe optimal training experience. It is also intended for use in systems that adapt to user workload and cognitive awareness. Phase I of this project will demonstrate the feasibility of the approach through extensive modeling andanalysis of the system. Experiments will be performed to quantify these relationships and to demonstrate key concepts. The results of these experiments will be used to produce a formal design for the eyetracker. Phase II of this project will produce afully developed prototype. Phase III will integrate the eyetracker into mainstream training products. The result of this project will significantly benefit both military and commercial applications. For the military it will enable the development ofroutine training techniques that use the cognitive glimpses provided through eye tracking to systematically and optimally provide training which assures cognitive readiness.
