Abstract:Mobile eye-tracking seems to be a very promising tool in behavioral research. This study is commissioned by the University of Twente to investigate the current situation of mobile eye-tracking and the possibilities to implement this at an ambulant lab at the university. Eventually this led to a recommendation on what equipment would suit best. To achieve this, the study is built up in four phases. First, a case study is described to give an indication about how mobile, out of the lab, research is performed en what the obstacles could be during this research. Second, a literature study is performed on the current situation of (mobile) eye-tracking at the fields of the five Behavioral Sciences departments that could profit from a possible purchase of an eye-tracking device: human factors, communication sciences, educational sciences, eHealth and automotive. Both the case as the literature study are used to set up a questionnaire that is used as a guidance during six interviews with members of the different departments. Using the MoSCoW-method, a set of requirements is marshalled from the interviews. These requirements are eventually matched with the current supply of eye-tracking devices. This led to the conclusion that no single eye-tracking device satisfies the needs of the departments. However, the purchase of both a mobile (head-mounted) as a remote (desk-mounted) device is recommended. Only the larger manufacturers, SMI and Tobii, satisfy the needs of the departments. Eventually the first recommendation is the purchase of a combination of Tobii Glasses 2 and Tobii TX300.
