3D Point-of-Gaze Headset

Lecturer Christopher McMurrough

Revolutionary eye-tracking technology invented at UTA will allow users to navigate electric wheelchairs and other mobile platforms without their hands. The University received a patent for a 3D point-of-gaze headset that resembles a pair of ski goggles, with cameras on top and eye-trackers embedded in the lenses.

The device, invented by Lecturer Christopher McMurrough, feeds data into a program that models the user's surrounding environment and what is currently being looked at by projecting the line of vision out and crossing it with the 3D view from the camera. The technology can also allow the wearer to communicate to a robotic platform when he or she would like to use an object, such as a glass of water.
