Multifunctional, Optical Sensor for Analysis of Dynamic Pupillary Light Reflex

Title variants
Languages of publication
The aim of the publication is to describe the multifunctional optical sensor for analysis of dynamic pupillary light reflex developed by the authors which could be used as an objective indicator of human fatigue. The authors utilized knowledge gained from past experimental studies to develop a sensor, which along with custom software for detection of parameters of dynamic pupillary reflex provides a quick analysis of the human psychophysiological condition. Furthermore, the obtained parameters may also be utilized for medical purposes. The authors present the results of pilot studies prior to the development process of the sensory solution. The obtained result show that the type of light stimulation of the retina has a significant impact on the dynamic parameters of the pupillary reflex. The results played also an important role in shaping the structural assumptions of the sensor, so that it can serve as an indicator of the human fatigue level. The article includes results of experimental research conducted during the testing process of the sensor using various parameters of frequency light excitations, luminance and chrominance.
