Work in Progress
Eye tracking is the process of measuring either the point of gaze or the motion of an eye relative to the head. An eye tracker is a device for measuring eye positions and eye movement. Eye trackers are used in research on the visual system, in psychology, in psycholinguistics, marketing, as an input device for human-computer interaction, and in product design. Previous study applies an eye-tracker to investigate effects of using human presenter in product images and conclude that eye-tracker data can be used for eye-gaze data collection and analyzed for further statistical conclusion . The result indicates that product image with positive emotion female presenter gets the highest fixation duration, however, not significantly higher than fixation duration of other types of product images. However, Eye tracking by professional eye-tracker is not an affordable research method for most researches. Facial expression translation is a new function comes from “Youdao translate officer” which can be downloaded from apple APP store for free; It can indicate human facial expression in eight dimensions (i.e., happiness, angry, fear, contempt, disgust, calm, surprise, sad) with values. We are proposed to use this free technical to investigate effects of using human present in product images and compare the results with studies applies eye-tracker previously. A fresh accepted research method could be discovered by this study, and give an optional research mothed in relative field.
