Editor's review

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 user’s 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.

Publisher's description

ECTtracker is an eye-tracking AAC (Alternative and Augmentative Communication) program, allowing the real-time analysis of the user's eye (open or closed). This application is a part of the complex of assistive technology software created by EyeComTec (LAZgroup SA). ECTtracker implements low cost computer mediated communication for people suffering from various forms of paralysis or significantly impaired mobility.
The program is used in conjunction with applications for capturing video from webcams or other devices connected to your computer (ex: ECTcamera, Skype). The program assigns different key codes to different states of the user's eye, which can later be transmitted to any application (ex: ECTmorse, ECTkeyboard). Thus, by opening and closing one or both eyes, the user can control programs and type texts.
Using a special recognition structure ECTtracker compares the image received in real-time from the camera with pre-stored user samples. Samples are small static images with accurate focus on the area of the user's eyes: on some samples the user's eyes are open, on other - one or both eyes are closed. The program selects the samples with the highest match through comparing the image samples obtained with the camera.
ECTtracker is fully customizable. The program contains more than 45 settings with which you can change the appearance and functionality. The user has a full control over the video processing speed (frames per second). Some settings can significantly reduce the requirements for computer resources, so the program runs stably even on low-end computers.
ECTtracker doesn't require installation or modifying the registry of the operating system and works with portable devices. Supports simultaneous launch of multiple copies of the program; Possibility to save all table samples and user settings in separate files.
