Examining eye-gaze interactions with computers

An active research collaboration with IT Copenhagen is examining eye-gaze interactions with computers. This is an alternative path for hand-free interactions with computers. Eye movements are used to control cursor movements (pointing) and for making selections (clicking). The focus of the current research is on inexpensive systems for tracking eye movements. The challenge is that eye control is quite noisy relative to manual mouse control, this makes selecting icons (designed for mouse interactions) quite difficult. Research is demonstrating the discrete zoom techniques can greatly improve selection using gaze control.
