Title
(EN) INTELLIGENT USER MODE SELECTION IN AN EYE-TRACKING SYSTEM
(FR) SÉLECTION DE MODE UTILISATEUR INTELLIGENTE DANS UN SYSTÈME OCCULOMÉTRIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A personal computer system comprises a visual display, an imaging device adapted to provide eye-tracking data by imaging at least one eye of a viewer of the visual display, and identifying means for recognizing the viewer with reference to one of a plurality of predefined personal profiles. The personal computer system further comprises an eye-tracking processor for processing the eye-tracking data. According to the invention, the eye-tracking processor is selectively operable in one of a plurality of personalized active sub-modes associated with said personal profiles. The sub-modes may differ with regard to eye-tracking related or power-management related settings. Further, the identifying means may sense an identified viewer's actual viewing condition (e.g., use of viewing aids or wearing of garments), wherein the imaging device is further operable in a sub-profile mode associated with the determined actual viewing condition.

L'invention concerne un système d'ordinateur personnel qui comprend un dispositif d'affichage visuel, un dispositif d'imagerie conçu pour fournir des données occulométriques par imagerie d'au moins un œil d'un observateur du dispositif d'affichage visuel, et un moyen d'identification pour reconnaître l'observateur en référence à un profil d'une pluralité de profils personnels prédéfinis. Le système d'ordinateur personnel comprend en outre un processeur d'occulométrie pour traiter les données occulométriques. Selon l'invention, le processeur d'occulométrie est sélectivement utilisable dans un sous-mode parmi une pluralité de sous-modes actifs personnalisés associés auxdits profils personnels. Les sous-modes peuvent différer en termes de réglages relatifs à l'occulométrie ou relatifs à la gestion de l'énergie. En outre, le moyen d'identification peut détecter une condition de visualisation réelle d'un observateur identifié (par exemple, l'utilisation d'appareils de correction visuelle ou le port de vêtements), le dispositif d'imagerie étant en outre utilisable dans un mode de sous-profil associé à la condition de visualisation réelle déterminée.
