Vive SRanipal eye tracking data


Recommended Posts

Hi, 

I'm using the SRanipal SDK in Unity to get eye tracking data from the HTC Vive Pro Eye headset. 

I have a question regarding the pos_sensor_Lx, pos_sensor_Ly, pos_sensor_Rx, pos_sensor_Ry variables (normalized by default in [0,1]). It is  generically said that they rapresent the pupil position. 

I tried to follow with the Vive Pro Eye a square figure and then overlay the plot of the pupil position for each eye as in the picture attached below (where the image in the background represents the left and right eye view as seen in the Unity game view). However the result obtained does not convince me, I expected to have the plot overlayed on the red square. 

So my question is: what do (pos_sensor_Lx, pos_sensor_Ly), (pos_sensor_Rx, pos_sensor_Ry) represent? Are them the position of the pupil on the telecamera or do they indicate where the user is watching on the headset screen? 

Are the variables I have to consider to get the gaze coordinates or I have to consider something else? 

Thank you!

Thank you for your answer. 

Anyway can you please tell me what pupil position is? Is it the position of the pupil on the telecamera or does it indicate where the user is watching on the headset screen?

Another question. I have plotted the (x,y) gaze directions for the left and the right eye normalized respect to the z gaze direction obtaining the result in the picture attached. Why is there that offset between the plot and the red squares? I expected the plot overlayed on the squares. 

I've read that the origin of the HTC Vive headset is located 15 mm "behind" the eye tracker's origin. Can be the offset observed caused by this fact? Is there a way to solve it so that the plot is over the red squares? 

Thank you
