How does the Eyegaze work?

A specialized video camera mounted below the Eyegaze Edge screen observes one of the user’s eyes. Sophisticated image processing software in the system analyzes the camera’s images 60 times each second and determines where the user is looking on the screen. Nothing is attached to the user’s head or body.

A 15 second calibration procedure is required to set up the system for a particular user. To calibrate, the user looks at a small circles 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.

Customizing the Eyegaze Edge

The Eyegaze programs have many adjustable parameters. The gaze duration, phrases and appliance labels, for example, can all be easily changed. An assistant or caregiver may edit the text or change data values through the ECS Settings program. The optional Grid 3 program enables the user to create his own custom communication screens, which can be stored for continued use. Grids can be designed with pictures or text with any sized cell and offers features such as Kindle, Facebook, Internet and television control.

Eyegaze Edge Link

For years, our Eyegaze Edge eye tracking technology has freed those who are unable to control their body movement or speak. Now we’re delivering even more freedom with the Eyegaze Edge Link®, a new device that creates a plug-and-play connection between your Eyegaze Edge and any system controlled by a USB keyboard and mouse.

The Eyegaze Edge Link® is a pair of USB devices that look like normal flash drives. Simply plug one into your Eyegaze Edge system, and plug the other into the computer or device you’d like to control. You’re connected! We’ve eliminated the connecting cables, the SKeys program, the SerialKeysX program, the USB to Serial converters, the software configuration….and all the time lost to configuring the various pieces.

The Edge Link® turns the Eyegaze Edge into wireless peripheral keyboard and mouse interface to any Windows or Mac computer or any other device which can be controlled with a USB keyboard and mouse. Typed text appears simultaneously on the screens of both the Eyegaze and the device being controlled.

Now you can use your Eyegaze on multiple devices by simply moving the Link. Any device that uses a USB keyboard and mouse can be controlled using the PC Access function in your Eyegaze Edge, including Microsoft Windows systems, Apple Mac systems, Linux systems, and more.

The Eyegaze Edge Link® is available as an upgrade for any current Eyegaze Edge user or as an option with the purchase of a new Eyegaze Edge system. We have the technology to expand your world!
