WELCOME TO HUMAN-MACHINE
We are a research and development organization focused on applications that integrate custom software and electronics with low-cost, commercially available natural user interface, brain-computer interface, and virtual reality technologies. Our mission is to harness the promise of these emerging technologies and discover innovative applications that will educate and help people to be safe, well and productive. Learn More »
Eye Tracking Pan/Tilt Wireless IP Camera
This experiment demonstrates eye tracking control of a low cost IP camera. A Tobii EyeX controller mounted beneath the screen tracks subtle eye movements. Custom software was developed to stream the video image from a Foscam pan/tilt wireless IP Camera. The software translates EyeX behaviors to commands for controlling the camera's pan and tilt motors. We see potential applications for this in perceptual robotics, telepresence, and assistive technologies. Check out the video here.
First Experiment with the Tobii EyeX Controller
This is a demo of an eye tracking robotic arm using the Tobii EyeX controller. The custom software was developed in C#/WPF using the pre-beta Tobii EyeX SDK for .NET. The hardware components used for this demo are commercially available for under $200. Check out the video here.
Proudly Sponsoring Brown University Assistive Tech Makeathon
