The importance of monitoring vergence eye movements for solutions using virtual technologies

Marek Piszczek, Mateusz Pomianek, Marcin Maciejewski, Leon Jodłowski, Piotr Krukowski


Eyesight monitoring systems are of particular interest to virtual technology research teams and concern mainly three key aspects: physiological, technical and functional. The first one is to solve the so-called conflict of vergence and accommodation. In contrast to typical gaming applications, e.g. vision therapy requires the ability to smoothly transfer attention between the points of near and far. The technical aspect is primarily the search for new measurement methods, which is particularly important in the case of mobile goggles with limited computing capabilities of the processor. The last aspect concerns the possibility of creating effective HMI (Human Machine Interface) solutions.
