Automotive HMI Research Project - Combining Eye Tracking & Gesture for HUD Control - Evaluating HMI Preference
Last year EyeTech contracted with an automotive company to build an HMI system that used touch, eye tracking and gesture technology. EyeTech prototyped a custom eye tracking (gaze based) user interface combined with gesture interaction, and performed testing and recordings of the interface for a car dashboard. EyeTech’s engineering team was contracted to create and set up all hardware and software involved in the project. EyeTech delivered the working software and hardware in March 2014 for the automotive partner to evaluate. With the time and resource constraints of the project, EyeTech’s partner decided to integrate the solution into a simulator with a pico projector as opposed to mounting in a car.

When humans communicate with each other, we get important cues from watching each other’s eyes. Similarly, machines can gain valuable information and new capabilities by detecting and tracking users’ gazes.
