A special eye tracking camera mounted below the Eyegaze Edge screen observes one of the user’s eyes.
Sophisticated image processing software analyzes the camera’s images 60 times each second and determines where the user is looking on the screen.
A less than 15 second calibration procedure is required to set up the system for a particular user. The user looks at a small calibration point as it moves around the screen.
There is no need to recalibrate if the user moves away from the screen and returns later.
A user operates the system by looking at rectangular “keys” or cells that are displayed on the control screen. To “press” a key, the user looks at the key for a specified period of time.
The gaze duration required to visually activate a key, typically about ½ second, can be adjusted by the user.
An array of menu keys and exit keys allow the user to navigate the Eyegaze programs independently.
I have been using the Eyegaze system for a little over 4 years now since I lost the ability to move the mouse with my hands due to ALS.
The ability to access the computer with the Eyegaze System has probably been the greatest contributor of my quality of life.
