Abstract

Eye tracking input often relies on visual and auditory feedback. Haptic feedback offers a previously unused alternative to these established methods. We describe a study to determine the natu-ral time limits for haptic feedback to gazing events. The target is to determine how much time we can use to evaluate the user gazed object and decide if we are going to give the user a haptic notification on that object or not. The results indicate that it is best to get feedback faster than in 250 milliseconds from the start of fixation of an object. Longer delay leads to increase in incorrect associations between objects and the feedback. Delays longer than 500 milliseconds were confusing for the user.
