Abstract

We present a web-based evaluation tool that simulates drivers’ eye glances to interface designs of in-vehicle information systems (IVISs). This tool computes saliency of each location of a candidate interface and simulates eye fixations based on the saliency, until it arrives at the region of interest. Designers can use this tool to estimate the duration of drivers’ eye glance needed to find regions of interest, such as particular icons on a touch screen. The overall goal of developing this application is to bridge the gap between guidelines and empirical evaluations. This evaluation tool acts as an interactive model-based design guideline to help designers craft less distracting IVIS interfaces.

A Web-Based Evaluation Tool to Predict Long Eye Glances

Salt Lake City, Utah

We present a web-based evaluation tool that simulates drivers’ eye glances to interface designs of in-vehicle information systems (IVISs). This tool computes saliency of each location of a candidate interface and simulates eye fixations based on the saliency, until it arrives at the region of interest. Designers can use this tool to estimate the duration of drivers’ eye glance needed to find regions of interest, such as particular icons on a touch screen. The overall goal of developing this application is to bridge the gap between guidelines and empirical evaluations. This evaluation tool acts as an interactive model-based design guideline to help designers craft less distracting IVIS interfaces.
