TrackEye : Real-Time Tracking Of Human Eyes Using a Webcam. Free source code and programming help Introduction Eyes are the most important features of the human face. So effective usage of eye movements as a communication technique in user-to-computer interfaces can find place in various application areas. Eye tracking and the information provided by the eye features have the potential to become an interesting way of communicating with a computer in a human-computer interaction (HCI) system. So with this motivation, designing a real-time eye feature tracking software is the aim of this project. The purpose of the project is to implement a real-time eye-feature tracker with the following capabilities: RealTime face tracking with scale and rotation invariance Tracking the eye areas individually Tracking eye features Eye gaze direction finding Remote controlling using eye movements Instructions to Run and Rebuild TrackEye Installation Instructions Extract file.

ITU Gaze Tracker The ITU Gaze Tracker is an open-source eye tracker that aims to provide a low-cost alternative to commercial gaze tracking systems and to make this technology more accessible. It is developed by the Gaze Group at the IT University of Copenhagen and other contributors from the community, with the support of the Communication by Gaze Interaction Association (COGAIN). The eye tracking software is video-based, and any camera equipped with infrared nightvision can be used, such as a videocamera or a webcam. The cameras that have been tested with the system can be found in our forum. We encourage users and developers to test our software with their cameras and provide feedback so we can continue development. The ITU Gaze Tracker is hosted in SourceForge. In order to run the software, uncompress the zip file and double click on GazeTrackerUI.exe. The user's guide to run and configure the ITU Gaze Tracker can be downloaded from here (PDF document) The requirements to run the ITU Gaze Tracker are:

What Customers Want > Chapter 2: What Customers Want In this chapter, author Jodie Dalgleish explains that what customers want from a web site depends on what they want to do, and then shows you how to deliver it to them. As I've stood behind customers, in the moment before they experience a business' Web site for the first time, I've been poignantly aware of all the expectations they have poised in their fingertips as they anticipate swinging into action once the home page downloads. I have found that, basically, customers expect a Web site to improve the service they receive from the business in question. To a customer, this means getting things done easier, faster, and smarter. And what does it mean to get things done? Sound familiar? They will want to seek out pertinent information and ask questions, evaluate alternatives, make choices, and make things happen as quickly as they can once they've made up their minds. The survey also shows that the Web is only part of a customer's service experience. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Advanced Common Sense (Web Usability Consulting - Steve Krug) Don't say "click here"; not everyone will be clicking - Quality Web Tips Don't use "click here" as link text What a link means When calling the user to action, use brief but meaningful link text that: provides some information when read out of context explains what the link offers doesn't talk about mechanics is not a verb phrase An example For instance, avoid the following sentence on your page: To download W3C's editor/browser Amaya, click here. or: To download Amaya, go to the Amaya Website and get the necessary software. Both of these sentences divulge too much of the mechanics of getting the Amaya software. Get Amaya! Note that "get" is left out of the hypertext; we do not recommend putting verb phrases in link text. Tell me more about Amaya. You should write: Tell me more about Amaya: W3C's free editor/browser that lets you create HTML, SVG, and MathML documents.
