Abstract

Understanding user’s intent has a pivotal role in developing immersive and personalised media applications. This paper introduces our recent research and user experiments towards interpreting user attention in virtual reality (VR). We designed a gaze-controlled Unity VR game for this study and implemented additional libraries to bridge raw eye-tracking data with game elements and mechanics.The experimental data show distinctive patterns of fixation spans which are paired with user interviews to help us explore characteristics of user attention.
