Details about the recording session: This data collection study will take place in SmartEye’s LED-Lab at the Göteborg office (Central Göteborg). Participants will be asked to gaze at fixed LED targets in the lab, in a series of scenarios with different lighting conditions, head rotations, and while wearing a facemask, sunglasses, and helmet for a portion of the study.  

Some scenarios will ask participants to refrain from blinking while looking at a target.  

Some scenarios will ask participants to blink with only one eye, then blink with only the other eye. 

Participants must be willing to be recorded via cameras and microphones during the study. Participants must be willing to commit to a 60-70 minute appointment.  

The recording session will consist of these 8 scenarios: 

  • Scenario 1. LED target sequence in strong light. This portion will as participant not to blink while LED target is steady light. 
  • Scenario 2. LED target sequence in a dark room. This portion will as participant not to blink while LED target is steady light. 
  • Scenario 3. LED target sequence with blinks and eye closures. 
  • Scenario 4. Head rotations and movements 
  • Scenario 5. LED target sequence, with Lizard gaze (Only using your eyes and not moving your head). 
  • Scenario 6. LED target sequence while wearing facemask and glasses. 
  • Scenario 7. LED target sequence while smiling or squinting. 
  • Scenario 8. LED target sequence, blinking only with left eye and then blinking only with right eye.
