Safety Information

Safety Warnings

Eye trackers emit infrared light which may interfere with infrared controlled devices. Do not use an eye tracker in the same room with any infrared controlled device if device failure could affect the safety or health of anyone.

Prolonged use of an eye tracker as a pointing device may strain eye muscles. The user should take frequent breaks and rest if eye fatigue is noticed.

An eye tracker can be a great tool for controlling a computer, but errors are common. Do not use an eye tracker to control any equipment which might affect the safety or health of anyone.

Avoiding Strain Injuries

Our experience at EyeTech Digital Systems has shown that there are two types of strain that can occur from using eye-tracking devices: neck strain and eye strain. If you notice discomfort, pain, or fatigue in either of these areas, stop using the EyeTech system and rest until you feel well again.

The length of time that a person can use the EyeTech system before feeling strain or fatigue varies from person to person. You need to listen to your body and rest when it tells you.

Information on Infrared (IR) Lights

The EyeTech system uses IR lights to illuminate the eyes and provide reference points for the eye tracker. The IR light is produced by LED’s at a wavelength of 850 nanometers. This type of IR light occurs naturally in sunlight and in light from incandescent lamps.

The IR output levels are well within the safety guidelines given in the book 2007 TLVs and BEIs by the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists.

Hardware Setup

Room Lighting

Fluorescent lights have no effect on the eye tracker. Incandescent lights or windows may degrade the operation of the eye tracker, especially if the light source is behind the monitor or behind the user. A light source directly to the side or directly above the user will not usually be a problem.

Installing the eye tracker on a Desktop or Tablet PC

NOTE: EyeTracker hardware usually comes with either a laptop stand or a VESA mount to attach the device to a tablet PC or desktop monitor.

  5. Insert each of the four screws provided with either the VESA desktop stand or the VESA monitor into the four mounting holes on the VESA monitor.
  6. Insert spacers as needed and then tighten the four screws.

  2. Insert each of the four screws provided into the mounting holes on the back of the stand and tracking module.
  3. Tighten the four screws with the included wrench.
  4. Verify that the camera is attached to the computer via the USB cable to the lower USB port. The upper USB port may also be plugged in for additional power to the lights.
  5. Verify that the red LED light in the back of the camera is on. If it is not, the camera is not receiving power from the USB port.
