Eye Tracking study analyzes gaze strategies when kicking Penalties

Kicking penalties is primarily a question of a soccer player’s nerves. Some shooters observe the goalkeeper and try to anticipate to which side he jumps – for kicking the ball just in the last moment into the opposite side. Other shooters want to set the keeper on the wrong track by focusing the “wrong” side during running up. A demonstration study of Ergoneers shows how easily the various penalty strategies of shooters be analyzed with an eye tracking system.

Tech stuff

The Dikablis Professional Eye Tracking Glasses use two tiny cameras in front of the soccer player’s eyes, filming his pupil movements. Another front-facing field camera captures a section of his visual field, i.e. the area the shooter can see. The field cam’s vertical adjustability ensures that exactly the relevant area is recorded, in this case the goal and the ball lying on the penalty spot. After a quick calibration procedure the kicker’s gaze is displayed by a fixation cross in the field cam window of the software platform D-Lab. By the patented marker technology of Ergoneers the analysis of visual behavior during kicking a penalty is a cinch: The markers are simply placed at or near the goal. With a few mouse clicks the data can then be analyzed automatically. D-Lab answers questions like when, how often, and how long a shooter gazes at the keeper or the various areas of the goal.
