Automatic Identification of Eye Movements
The Bayesian Decision Theory Identification (I-BDT) algorithm was designed to identify fixations, saccades, and smooth pursuits in real-time for low-resolution eye trackers. Additionally, the algorithm operates directly on the eye-position signal and, thus, requires no calibration.

Bayesian Online Clustering of Eye Movements
The task of automatically tracking the visual attention in dynamic visual scenes is highly challenging. To approach it, we propose a Bayesian online learning algorithm. As the visual scene changes and new objects appear, based on a mixture model, the algorithm can identify and tell saccades from visual fixations.
The source code for use with Visual Studio is included in the ScanpathViewer Software. Scanpath Viewer is a visualization tool for eye-tracking recordings. It can produce customizable, animated heatmaps and scanpath graphs.
