Here are presented some results of the RoboEye prototype, developed by MIRo in collaboration with Robosense and Xtrensa. (LINK ALTRI ARTICOLI)
The project was realized from scratch, using a power wheelchair on the road of the disposal.
The group managed to strucure and organize all the elemnts for an advanced interaction between the user and a software interface to allow the motion by just using the eyes.
Here can be found 2 videos of users moving the wheelchair inside a testing pursuit in Villarosa, Pergine.
The interaction of gaze-based solutions with the control routine of a wheelchair could have a key role in the life of many patients suffering from mobility problems. This project aims to develop some innovative strategies to control a semi autonomous wheelchair through the gaze. Starting from the information coming from an Eye Tracker the user performs the control of the wheelchair by means of a human machine interface (HMI), a strategy useful to interact with the device. The HMI was realized using an advanced game engine (UNITY).
