This program tracks the state of eye for the purpose of controlling actions of a computer application.
ECTtracker (EyeComTechTracker) is an eye tracking program that is able to determine the state of the user`s eye. It can positively identify if the eye is open or shut. One part of the program is used to capture the state of the userís eye; a video camera can do the job. ECTtracker program compares different states of the user`s eye to different key codes, which subsequently can be passed to other applications. By opening and closing one or both eyes, the user can control programs and type texts. For this purpose, this program is able to do real -time recognition of the images received from the camera and determines the action required. Small static images with an accurate focus on the eye area of the user are stored as samples to compare.
The program can be customized fully. Image recognition structure, threshold match boundaries of the current image with the samples, the video processing speed (frames per second), program downtime at the image loss and configuration of the key codes can be customized. 45 settings can be used to customize the appearance and the functionality of ECTtracker. Some settings can significantly reduce computer resource requirements, enabling the program to run stably even on low end computers. Multiple copies of the program could be running simultaneously. The samples` table could be cleared, if necessary and reloaded with newly captured images. Key codes keyed to the state of the eye could be customized too. This is a very good application that could be very useful in many situations.
