Researchers Seeking Participants to Study the Use of Smart Glasses for Shopping


PhD students from the Enhancing Ability Lab at Cornell University are looking for participants for a research study regarding using smart glasses while shopping for groceries. Participants must have some usable vision and will be compensated. We've included the announcement from the researchers below.

Our research group at Cornell University (NYC Campus) is studying how Smart Glasses could help low vision people with product search during grocery shopping. We are looking for volunteers to participate in a study to help us with our work!

What the study is about:

This study is to explore the design space of using Smart Glasses to help low vision people with product search during grocery shopping and the benefits and weaknesses of different visual cues in attracting low vision people’s attention.

Participants must:
Be at least 18 years old
Have low vision (i.e., a visual impairment that cannot be corrected with contacts or glasses) or have professional experience working with low vision people

Participants will be compensated $20 (or a $20 gift card) for each hour of a study session. For this two-hour study they will receive $40. If participants require assistance with transportation to the study location, we will pay for their transportation expenses up to $60.

If you are interested, please contact us at yz769@cornell.edu (Yuhang Zhao) or shiri.azenkot@cornell.edu (Shiri Azenkot).

We look forward to meeting with you and learning from your experiences!

If you have some friends who are also interested in this study, please feel free to forward this email or ask them to contact us. Thank you so much for your help!
