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.
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.
