We have a soft spot for those at the forefront of research here at FOVE, so we collect trending questions fielded by our support & engineering teams and post answers to them here:
Q.How much does our data let us predict eye movement and/or behaviour?
A.That is an interesting research topic.
Q.How accurate is our telemetry? What’s it collected with ? how many sensors?
A.It is collected by two QVGA IR cameras inside the HMD which have <1° RMSE on average in stable conditions.
Q.How might our telemetry be useful, & how does FOVE make it available through the SDK?
A.It is useful for Avatars, UI and UX subtleties, foveated rendering and gesture object selection. There is great potential here, the limit is your creativity.
Q.Is the Infrared camera’s raw feed available? If so how? is Capture possible? I
A.We are working to expose this in the future via the SDK.
Q.Is FOVE are powered by machine learning? Are you sharing? Where’s our sample data coming from?
A.Yes. No at this time. From a space between spaces.
A.Yes. Not yet. Our sample data is captured and labeled in house.
Q.Eye diversity: how are we accounting for it? Can our headset even diagnose it?
A.IR light eliminates a lot of it. What is left is labelled and processed. Blue/Brown eyes are the easiest to distinguish with obvious differences in contrast between pupil and iris.
Q.Eye behavioural diversity: Can the FOVE 0 HMD's telemetry predict movement?
A.Yes. Not by itself, but with research it should be possible.
Q. Can I get a custom invoice addresed to my university & pay by wire transfer?
A.Yes, and yes. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, they will make one for you and supply payment instructions.
If you're a researcher get in touch by shooting an email to our support team, we'd love to see what you're working on.
