The paper presents an eye tracking experiment transferring the research approach of investigating the dependency of different tasks on visual behaviour into the context of engineering design. In contrast to conventional experiments, the stimulus is not a painting, but a 2D sectional drawing representing a technical system. In order to closely analyse the basic question of how different tasks influence the visual behaviour of engineering designers, the experiment is conducted by application of modern remote eye tracking systems and by participation of a larger sample of test persons (n=26).
