- Usability study of gaze interaction systems
incl. Development of methodology for usability analysis that can be used for both researchers and practitioners
- Application of the methodologies to users in daily life
Users’ behaviour analysis under non-controlled condition
Usability analysis with potential users, such as hospitalized ALS patients
1. Practical contributions
related to development gaze-related metrics, learning processes of gaze interaction, etc.
Demonstrated/presented at an ALS domestic conference in Saitama, Japan, and the ALS Centre (having more than 50 ALS patients hospitalised).
2. Academic contributions
4 journal papers submitted, 4 conference papers presented
All activities have been performed in collaboration mainly with ITU, and so on.
Usability analysis of GazeTal based on observation data obtained from people with ALS in real-life condition (plan in 2007)
Observation of ALS patients’ behaviour during gaze interaction
Long-term video recording of users’ behaviour
Comparison of behaviour between people with/without disability
Needs specific to ALS patients in real-life
Performance evaluation by use of gaze metrics obtained in real-life condition
Development of remote usability evaluation technique
Implications for the design of gaze interaction system for ALS patients in real-life
