Abstract : An electronic apparatus for simulating or actuating an eye sensing oculometer system with simulated eye movement signals that are stable, predetermined, and repeatable. The simulated signals are electrically coupled to an oculometer signal input port in lieu of video signals normally received from an eye viewing camera. Optical images representing infra red reflections from the retina and the cornea portions of the oculometer user's eye are simulated by the apparatus; movement of these images in a computer controlled pattern is contemplated and is emulated by simple operator electable patterns in the disclosed apparatus. The presence of noise signals and eye imperfections are contemplated in the stimulating apparatus. Patents. (rh)
