This research describes an approach to objective assessment of mental workload, by analyzing differences in pupil diameter and several aspects of eye movement (fixation time, saccade distance, and saccade speed) under different levels of mental workload. In an experiment, these aspects were measured by an eye-tracking device to examine whether these are indeed indicators for mental workload. Pupil diameter and fixation time both show a general significant increase if the mental workload increases while saccade distance and saccade speed do not show any significant differences. This assessment of mental workload could be a trigger for aiding the operator of an information system, in order to meet operational requirements. Â© 2009 Springer.
