Keeping Your Eyes On The Ball May Be Essential Hot In the past, scientists have attempted to study the eye movement of athletes by observing their gaze as they ran, or tracking their eye movements as they caught virtual balls in a confined, enclosed space. None of these studies, however, could say with absolute certainty that the catchers were always watching the ball.
Eye Tracking and Driver Physiology Hot Yellowcog driver and vehicle data collection with eye-tracking, physiological monitoring and car performance data. Lots of channels of data are collected in this video which is recorded from the driver's point of view. The video shows the driver's "point of gaze" (using eye-tracking technology), heart rate, breathing rate, core body temperature and an exertion score. Added to the physiological information is a range of car data.
