Joint Attention Support in Remote Meetings

Joint Support in Recurring Meetings

Project Description

The number of remote team meetings significantly increased during last years. Although remote collaboration has many advantages, new challenges arise with an increasing amount of video conferences in our daily life. Visual cues, such as mutual gaze or joint attention, become degraded in remote meetings despite playing a critical role in team work. Eye tracking technology allows overcoming these obstacles by sharing gaze information of collaborators. In this research project, we focus on designing systems for joint attention support in remote meetings. The system aims to support joint attention in recurring remote meetings, it integrates eye tracking technology to provide a real-time visualization of presenter’s gaze during remote meetings and an individual retrospective attention feedback called AttentionBoard.


Privacy-Aware Joint Attention Support for Remote Collaboration

Project Description

In remote collaborations, gaze visualizations can provide coordination and communication support. However, the users’ willingness to share their gaze data in remote collaborations is low since they have privacy concerns. In this research project, we address this need by designing and developing PrEyeCo, a privacy-aware remote collaboration system that integrates eye tracking technology and provides joint attention support in a privacy-aware manner.
