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 (Human Machine Interface) 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.
Mesa, AZ, July 22, 2014 – EyeTech Digital Systems, Inc., is now shipping a new generation of eye trackers with AEye technology featuring “Eye-Tracking-On-A-Chip.” AEye supports both Android and Windows operating systems, and provides on-board computing to expand the possibilities for high quality embedded eye tracking.
AEye hardware combines Xilinx Zync with an ARM processor on a single board for a compact, low-power design. AEye software takes advantage of FPGA processing with new robust algorithms enabling instant acquisition and reacquisition of the eyes.
The EyeTech AEye OEM Module Provides High Quality Embedded Eye Tracking with On-board Computing Supporting both Windows and Android.
EyeTech is now shipping the AEye SDK which includes hardware, software, and engineering support. EyeTech’s portfolio also includes custom eye tracking prototypes, computer interface eye tracking modules, and eye tracking modules for the disabled.
Founded in 1996, EyeTech Digital Systems is a global leader in eye tracking technology. EyeTech’s engineering expertise in eye tracking and image processing has helped companies across the globe incorporate eye tracking technology into products such as speech devices for the disabled, museum displays, automobile safety, entertainment systems, consumer product prototypes and research systems.
