Information technology for active perception (Itap)


Information technology for active perception (Itap) was our first research project on gaze guidance. For recent developments, see this site.

The main idea is that the way we actively look (the pattern of eye-movements usually called scan-path) is an as important image attribute as are color and brightness and that this new image attribute needs to be sensed and displayed, and also processed, like the more traditional attributes are. To "display" the new image attribute, we will guide the gaze of the viewing person according to a given scan-path. This can be used for better visual communication and interaction.

Itap research supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research as part of the interdisciplinary project ModKog.
