Scientists at the University of Nevada grasp how our vision works.
Led by Paul MacNeilage, a team of scientists from the University of Nevada have created an eye-tracking technology that offers many new insights into our vision. It's based on a Pupil Labs headset that tracks eye movements with small cameras. A person's coordinates are determined by GPS, the system’s cameras record, at the same time, the forward view, comparing images with the movements of his or her eyes.
So, researchers can now track not only the general direction of the gaze, but also a specific point the person’s eyes are focused on at any given time, as well as his coordinates. The next stage will involve an experiment with volunteers of different ages. The scientists will try to get an insight into what the study’s participants focus on. All this will help to create modern VR headsets, artificial vision and other devices.
