DATA ANALYSIS FOR DRIVER PERFORMANCE STUDIES. VOLUME II. A COMPUTER PROGRAM FOR ANALYSIS OF EYE MOVEMENT PATTERNS

A digital computer program is described which analyzes visual search data from subjects watching a traffic film while performing a simulated driving task. Classification of eye states into saccades, fixations, pursuits, and blinks, statistical summaries of eye movement patterns, analysis of 'looks' at pre-selected events in the film, and analysis of a discrete response task performed by the subject are included in the capabilities of the program. Sources of error and program accuracy are discussed. The program is written in FORTRAN IV and is presently implemented on the IBM 360 at the UCLA Campus Computing Network. Volume I of this report is entitled PDP-8 Data Acquisition System for Driver Performance Studies.
