Ying Ki, our very own eye-tracking research consultant, was on the centre-stage, describing how eye-tracking research can help us uncover in-depth insights that are not easily accessible via regular methods in Human Factors and Ergonomics research.

Eye-tracking is particularly important in Human Factors and Ergonomics research, for example in driving research, where safety and accident prevention are of utmost significance.

In terms of attention, the human’s dominant sense is vision. More often than not, our sense of sight contributes to the majority of our conscious awareness.

However, what might be surprising to you is that even our attention and decision making processes are influenced by our unconscious visual inputs.

This neuro-cognitive mechanism is something that visual and interaction designers adopt to improve conversion. Our consulting company arm, Objective Experience,  takes into consideration this mechanism when conducting any user testing and has always been educating the user experience industry in Australia and Singapore about this.

The Tobii Pro Glasses 2 was also showcased during the presentation, and it generated a huge amount of interest among the audience. With a wearable eye tracker like the Tobii Pro Glasses 2, human factors and ergonomics research can be conveniently conducted in naturalistic environments. This is essential to understand how our visual inputs affect our behaviour and decision making in real world conditions, and not just in lab settings.TobiiPro_Glasses_2_Eye_Tracker_side_3_1.jpg

We’re saving the Planet! Objective Eye Tracking and Prof. Gemma Calvert secure a grant from The Institute on Asian Consumer Insight!

We are proud and excited to announce that Objective Eye Tracking is collaborating with Prof. Gemma Calvert and her team of researchers at Nanyang Technological University on a grant project awarded by The Institute on Asian Consumer Insight (ACI).

This ground breaking research project will seek to understand Asian consumers’ sustainable living perceptions and how that translates into their shopping behaviors. The project tackles key strategic topics under the Possible Future Worlds research initiative at ACI. The mission for this project is to better understand how we can reduce the impact that humans have on Planet Earth.

We will probe into the consumers’ subconscious attitudes and emotions about sustainability, recycling and eco-shopping using cutting edge methods including the Implicit Reaction Time tests and Eye Tracking with the Tobii Pro Glasses 2. These methods will help us uncover new insights that are not easily accessible via regular self-report measures and derive new solutions that will help change human behavior and make a difference.
