At the Chair of Ergonomics we use a variety of eye-tracking methods. You'll find a short overview below.


The non-intrusive SmartEye system is designed to measure the subject’s head pose and gaze direction in 3D. In addition various information about eye lid opening values and pupil dilation can be measured.

The Chair of Ergonomics owns the SmartEyePro system in the version 7.0 using three permanently installed infrared cameras, which allow data recording with 60 Hz. An interface to the driving simulation software SILAB of the WIVW enables the Chair of Ergonomics to analyse use cases such as driver drowsiness detection in real-time.


Additional information about the head and gaze tracking system SmartEye is available on the manufacturer’s Homepage.
