Brown Bag: Mobile Eye Tracking in Out-of-Lab Settings

Mobile eye tracking glasses are light and relatively unobtrusive, extending the scope of possible research to more ecologically valid designs outside of research laboratories. I use mobile eye tracking to study navigation and how well people know their environment. In a pilot study, participants planned and executed a walking route from point A to point B, and answered questions on landmark location. I will present some recordings from the study, and I am looking forward to a discussion about different measures of environment knowledge that can be extracted from eye tracking and video data, suggestions for changes to the study protocol to increase its validity, and sharing practical tips on mobile eye tracking recordings in outdoor environments.
