Webinar information

The presentation provides a context of the project outlining our experimental set-up, eye-tracking measures and analysis, and future research directions. Eye-gaze was used as a proxy measure for gauging workers' attention to hazards when viewing scenes of construction sights. Their viewing strategies and perception level were assessed in the context of their experience, roles, and training when viewing different construction site scenarios.
