In our research we analyze the visual attention of humans for the investigation of wayfinding behavior, especially with questions related to spatial cognition: is it possible to explain a person’s behavior during wayfinding from her gaze behavior? Can we build predictive models for the decision, based on people’s gaze behavior?

Our outdoor capable eye tracking hardware allows us to approach these and other research questions with studies performed in an urban environment, i.e., outside the research lab. The findings from these studies can later be used as design guidelines for wayfinding assistance systems.

For more details, read our publications on self-localization, the complexity of wayfinding decision situations, or location-aware mobile eye tracking.
