Posted October 07, 2018 05:17:18 A new exhibition at the Ontario Science Centre in Ottawa features a pair of research teams working to develop an eye-tracking device that would track and map the movement of our eyes and eyes in real time.
The team behind the project, called “Eye Tracking in a Day,” is from University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
They’re developing a device that will allow a person to track their gaze from one eye to the other without having to wear glasses or goggles.
The device will record the movements of the eye with software that will be downloaded to the person’s smartphone.
The project, titled “Eye tracking in a day,” was presented to the Canadian Society for Neuroscience and the National Research Council in Ottawa on Wednesday.
It is part of an ongoing effort to develop new eye tracking technologies that would be useful for tracking the movements and emotions of people around the world.
The new research team is led by Dr. Daniela López-Fuerza, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Toronto.
The team also includes the university’s Professor Daniel A. Daley and Professor Daniela Rocha-Conde.
The research will be presented at the Society for Neuroethics, the National Science Foundation, the Centre for Computational Neuroscience at the Ottawa Hospital and at the Canada Council for Science and Technology.
