P13541: Eye Tracker


Project Summary Project Information

The main goal of our project is to create a tablet-based eye tracker. The reason behind this is that there are two main categories of eye trackers that currently exist. The first is the remote eye tracker, which attaches to a desktop computer and thus is not portable. The second category is a pair of eyeglasses with integrated cameras. The eyeglass solution is more portable, but requires the user to wear a laptop backpack.

The goal for this project is to create a tablet-mounted device that houses at least one camera to track the user’s eye. It will be used in conjunction with the tablet’s built-in rear camera in order to determine what the user is looking at.
