Technology is changing everything from urgent medical diagnostics, how we interact with our screens (Smart Phone, PC, or TV) or monitoring our level of awareness and emotional state while driving our cars. EyeTechDS Inc. will demonstrate new ways of testing for concussions from the sidelines using a VR headset, how cars can read our cognitive and emotional state, and new ways to control our screens using our touch-free eye control technology.

About EyeTech Digital Systems, Inc
Founded in 1996, EyeTech designs algorithms, hardware, and software for eye tracking systems used in speech devices which help paralyzed individuals communicate and control their computer hands-free using only eye movements. The technology is now being incorporated into emerging industrial and consumer applications in medical diagnostic solutions for neurological testing, simulation and training solutions, vehicle safety, security, gaming, wearable VR/AR solutions and more.

EyeTech Digital Systems, Inc has partnered with Quantum Rehab to bring eye controlled wheel chairs to individuals who are unable to use hand controls. A live demo will be on display at the Tech West, Sands Halls A-D at EyeTech's booth# 43372 during the CES 2017 expo.
EyeTech's eye tracking technology mounts directly to a tablet PC and allows the user to control the entire computer using eye movements. The system then mounts to the wheelchair. An eye control driving app gives the user the ability to drive hands-free. The driving controls are overlaid on the scene camera video giving the functionality of a heads up display. Simply looking at the driving controls activates them to control the basic directions and movements of the chair.
EyeTech has served the assistive technology market since its inception 20 years ago. Although the applications for eye tracking are growing and becoming more mainstream, EyeTech continues to find new applications to help those with physical disabilities. This year at CES, EyeTech brought a wheel chair and demonstrated driving it with your eyes. See this article from Arizona Tech Beat.
Of course VR HMDs are also a natural application for eye tracking, and EyeTech welcomed partner Quantum Interface as part of the EyeTech booth to show the latest developments. Click here for a write-up on this application from Tom's Hardware.
Also in the booth with EyeTech was a demo of EyeTech's VT3 eye tracker combined with King Devick software to detect and diagnose brain injuries. Click here for a summary of our CES 2016 exhibits.
The best part about CES, however, is meeting new people who envision embedding eye tracking into their latest application--applications that protect, teach, and enable.
