Developing head/eye tracking software for people with mobility issues
While the causes of paralysis are vast, the result is a limited life dependent on care and technology. Communities need to actively focus on ways to be more inclusive to the millions of Americans that are paralyzed. Technology based off of head and eye movement can help those suffering from paralysis to communicate, work, and gain independence.
The Head Mouse is part of the 'Heads Up Project' developed by the Rix Centre, in partnership with The Nominet Trust. The centre is developing low-cost assistive learning technologies for people with disablities. The Head Mouse is head-tracking software designed to allow users to better communicate through their computers by operating a cursor through their webcam and motions of their head.
