What if your car could tell if you’re happy, sad, or too tired or impaired to drive?
EyeTechDS Inc. visual tracking software uses occulometrics track eye movement and pupil dilation gauging the drivers attention or lack thereof while driving. Noldus Facial recognition software recognizes a smile or slack facial expressions, head pose, eye perclose and many other useful metrics which will be helpful for ADAS. Results are graphed to show a drivers attention and emotions while behind the wheel.
Noldus “FaceReader automatically analyzes 6 basic facial expressions, neutral, contempt, and boredom, interest, and confusion.”1 Widely used in marketing application FaceReader is able to “quickly gain insight into the effects of different stimuli.”1
Potential application include luxury auto manufacturers who will be able to accurately gauge a level of satisfaction and distractions from the driving experience, while restricted drivers could have more than a simple breathalyzer restricting their cars from starting. Further advancements in automated driving could tell the car when it's time to take over driving to deliver passengers to a safe location eliminating falling asleep behind the wheel.

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 is pleased to announce the release of http://answers.eyetechds.com/questions/, a website designed to provide developers with a community to ask questions and get answers on eye tracking.
“With the release of our new AEye technology at CES 2014, we realized there was an overwhelming need for adding eye tracking into many products and categories. We are excited to provide a on-line community where developers can find answers so they can more quickly integrate eye tracking into their products. Our simple question and answer community at http://answers.eyetechds.com/questions/ will help set the eye tracking standard as the next natural user interface.” – Keith Jackson, Director of OEM Sales
Embedding eye tracking into an almost limitless number of products and categories is now becoming possible with the EyeTech ET-OEM with AEye™ technology.
EyeTech partnered with Xilinx™ to enable eye tracking to be embedded into more applications because of its small form factor, lower power consumption and low cost BOM. This new eye tracking on a chip design does not require a host PC making it the ideal embedded solution for manufacturer looking to add eye tracking capabilities to their products. Best of all the algorithm supports drivers for both Windows and Android and runs solely on an ARM Cortex A9 processor. This is ideal for manufacturers who are looking to add eye tracking into devices with strict power and size requirements.
