A Non Intrusive Method for Measuring Visual Attention Designed for the Study and Characterization of Users' Behavior in Serious Games
The study and characterization of user behavior in the context of human computer interaction allows us to improve the design of interactive applications. Using certain sensors to analyze user behavior such as an eye tracking system can be intrusive and uncomfortable. In this paper, we report on an experiment to determine the minimum field of view that permits the user to perform an effective search task in a 3D virtual environment, by analyzing how the user controls the virtual camera. Our study exploits a model based on the use of several novel non intrusive temporal and quantitative measures of visual attention, such as: fixation, gaze, and movement. Seven out of ten measures gave significant results with the same findings.
