Delivered as a system-on-chip, eye tracking for XR generates deep insights about a person, such as what they are looking at, pupil sizes, head tilt, and blink rate. No other technology can provide this kind of understanding of attention, intent, and cognition, among other behaviors. Eye tracking is crucial for XR because it creates a communication channel between users and devices and enables foveation techniques to ensure a viable ecosystem.
The XR ecosystem relies on collaboration among stakeholders with widely varying business strategies, goals, and customers. Yet everyone involved — developers, content creators, device manufacturers, system builders, and network operators — recognizes the need for deep user insights and high-quality intuitive and immersive user experiences. And because it lends everyone a helping hand, eye tracking has become one of the most sought-after technologies in XR.
