What is eye gaze technology?

Eye gaze or eye tracking is a way of accessing your computer or communication aid using a mouse that you control with your eyes.

The Tobii systems follow your eyes with amazing accuracy to see where you are looking on the screen. You can then select the item you are looking at by staring at the screen for a length of time, blinking or clicking with a switch.

It is used by people with conditions such as Motor Neurone Disease (ALS)Cerebral PalsyMuscular Dystrophyspinal injuriesRett Syndrome and people with profound or multiple disabilities.

Need to know

Tobii eye gaze systems work by having lights and cameras that are constantly sending and receiving information. The camera picks up light reflections from your pupils and translates the movement of your eyes into mouse cursor movements. It takes only seconds to complete a one time calibration.
Anyone who may find accessing a computer or communication aid difficult using standard or other access methods. With one of the largest track boxes on the market, the Tobii systems can track over 95% of users, regardless of eye colour, glasses, contact lenses, lighting conditions or head movements.
Anything you would normally use a mouse to access, you can access with your eyes, and that is almost all software! Looking around the screen will move the mouse cursor accordingly, stare at a point on the screen or blink to click. Tobii’s Windows control options allow you to right/left click, double click, drag and magnify to accurately select small targets, opening up a whole range of software opportunities. Such freedom enables eye gaze students the opportunity to use the same software as classmates, play their favourite games and even access their favourite websites.
