Eye Tracker (Tobii Pro Glasses 3)

  Tobii Pro Glasses 3 is an Eye tracker device which designed to enable easy, precise, and efficient collection of eye tracking data in a wide variety of research scenarios.
  Accurate data and robust eye tracking capabilities can be relied on in uncontrolled situations and real-world environments.

Motion Capture Device (Xsens MVN)

  Xsens MVN is a wearable acceleration sensor-based motion capture device.
  Unlike traditional motion capture devices which usually use a 17-joint model to represent the human body, the MVN device can collect data from 23 joints.

Analysis on Falling Risk of Elderly Workers when Mowing on a Slope

  Mowing is one of the most dangerous tasks in agricultural production which may cause accidents such as falling or accidental cutting. However, in the areas of mountainous in Japan, the mowing works still need to be done via the manually operated machines.
  In this research, we focus more on the mowing workers’ personal factors and try to analyze the effect on their falling risk via a high precision motion capture device (Xsens MVN) and Eye tracker (Tobii Pro Glasses 3).

Multi Sensor-based Driver Behaviors Analyzing and Modeling

  About 90% of traffic accidents are due to human error, human factors may affect a driver's braking behaviors and thus their driving safety, especially . 
  To determine the effect of different human factors on drivers' pre-braking behaviors, This study focused on analyzing drivers' local joints by a motion capture device. HilbertHuang Transform (HHT)-based local human body movement analysis method was used to decompose the realistic complex pre-braking actions.
