Three subcontractors (EyeTracking, Inc., Paloma Systems, and Jorge Scientific) join EPS to provide support and services in twenty-one functional areas.
EyeTracking, Inc.’s contribution to the EPS team on the Seaport effort is in the areas of Research & Development, Human Factors, and Training. EyeTracking Inc.’s technology can evaluate in real-time where an individual is looking on a display or console for critical information and how much mental effort is involved as they process the information. EyeTracking’s specialized form of evaluation monitors user cognitive workload to optimize the interface of new operational systems and to enhance enabling technologies.
The ICA is a newly developed, patented measure based on pupil dilation that provides an objective, physiological based measure of cognitive workload. The ICA provides a quantitative assessment of interface design and usability by directly measuring the mental effort of the user engaged with it. Such assessment determines whether system redesigns increase, maintain, or reduce the mental workload of the user as desired.
