Software

I’ve been involved in making various bits of software over the years. Here’s a summary.

EyeTrackR

EyeTrackR is a package (or add-on, basically) for R, which is a popular language for organising, analysing and visualising datasets. The purpose of the package is to make various tasks related to handling eye-tracking data much easier. I’m still developing it, but it is available to download for free, here.

EyeCalibrator

EyeCalibrator is a full set of software for analysing eye-tracking data, geared towards use with a perambulatory (head-mounted) eye-tracker. We presented a poster about it at a conference a few years back (poster is here). Extensive work is under way to make sure that it is as efficient as it can be, and that it can handle camera footage that comes in at higher frame rates. A screenshot is below.

Thresholder

Thresholder is also a work in progress – it handles a bunch of day-to-day tasks that are required for many visual cognition experiments, including:

  • Resizing images
  • Renaming images
  • Rotating images
  • Creating a transparent background
  • Creating image masks by jumbling the image in a grid
  • Interlacing images so that they appear “3D” when presented on a 3D display

I’m currently ironing out bugs and issues and hoping to make it available for wider usage very soon. The goal is for it to be able to a wide range of different things, very quickly.
