Improve training scenarios for high-stress professions

For operators working in cockpits, control rooms, and other critical environments, situational awareness is vital to making the right decisions. Rigorous training in real-world or simulated environments can be the difference between success and failure.

The benefits of eye tracking

Eye tracking provides insight into human behavior, helping you understand how individuals or teams perform in high-fidelity simulations and live environments.

With eye tracking you can

The advantages of using eye tracking to measure and assess performance include:

  • Optimizing training processes and systems

  • Conducting cognitive workload and situational awareness assessment

  • Understanding decision making in critical tasks and environments

  • Recording live view and after-action review videos

  • Improving usability and system design
