The MIRo Team obtained a first impressive result in the field of robotic teleoperation by controlling a mobile robot just by using the gaze. This is an ongoing internal project in collaboration with Xtensa and Robosense.
The result has been achieved by combining various technologies and knowledges in a system made of: an industrial PLC/PC, a robotic platform, an eye tracker system and a local robotic manager.
The system is just an early prototype but the results are very impressive since we managed to perform maneuvers with the same ease of a joystick.
In the video the second successful trial, on two tests (100% success rate), of Malvina that maneuvers the robot outside the lab.
