Eye Movement Analysis of Interactive Interface of CRH High-Speed Train Braking Test

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 1212)


Playing a crucial role in the start of high-speed train driving, braking test is a necessary task to be conducted before train departure. In the train braking test, a driver needs to make a quick response according to a hint displayed on the human-machine interactive interface screen and then operate a driver’s master handle to the designated position. This paper makes a braking test for the driver’s operations of a Chinese CRH train based on the application of an eye tracker. Then, through analysis of eye movement data involved during the interaction, vision characteristics of the interaction are illustrated. The research result is of referential values to design optimization of man-machine interaction interfaces.
