Abstract : With operators monitoring an increasing number of digital information feeds from numerous devices, it is essential to quickly shift control among these devices when confronted with complex, asymmetric threat situations. These threats can manifest themselves quickly, leaving operators only a brief window of response time. Current switching methods rely on manual inputs, resulting in significantly slower response times. The authors describe the integration effort to combine eye-tracking technology into a multiple display information system, validation of the resulting system, and results of studies conducted to determine the performance impact to response time, accuracy, and user workload by using eye-tracking input instead of manual controls to switch control among multiple displays.
