Master Thesis: Eye tracking signals as a predictor of human behavior 

Scroll to content

Tobii is the world leader in eye tracking – a technology that allows a computer to tell exactly where a person is looking. Eye tracking is used in a broad range of applications including market research and eye-controlled computer interfaces.

Tobii is looking for a student to investigate eye tracking signal as a predictor of human behavior. You will be part of the X-Team, creating software and experiences for XR. The X-Team have backgrounds in software engineering, machine learning, signal processing and UX. They develop SDKs, middleware, and demos for XR devices, and see their solutions being used and talked about on a world-wide stage.

Having an eye tracking signals alone does not provide value in itself; how this signal is used makes all the difference. We want to investigate to what degree eye tracking signals are predictors of human behavior in VR in for example

  • Attention
  • Cognitive load
  • Interest
  • Drowsiness

Your task is understanding existing eye tracking paradigms (which mostly exist on "desktop" based eye tracking systems) and research how they apply in VR. As part of this you will:

  • Understand existing literature in the given domain (e.g., based on desktop eye tracking)
  • Design VR experiments on top of our research toolkit written in (C# / Rust)
  • Run user studies
  • Perform data analysis (Rust, Python, Machine Learning)
  • Determine to what degree these paradigms apply

We are looking for someone with:

  • Strong skills in two of the following or in comparable tech:
    • Unity
    • Rust
    • Machine Learning
  • Experience with VR

Eye tracking experience is a big plus!

Your application should include:

  • CV
  • Cover letter
  • Transcripts

We review applications and interview candidates continuously. Please send your application as soon as possible through our website.

Or, know someone who would be a perfect fit? Let them know!
