SHI, GALE and PURDY, 2006. Vision responsive technology to assist people with limited mobility. IN: Proceedings of the 3rd Cambridge Workshop on Universal Access and Assistive technology (CWUAAT), 2006
Automation in the home or office environment plays an increasingly important part in people’s lives. The control of such automated systems can be achieved by means as simple as pressing buttons of a remote control or as complex as using user’s speech. There are some situations where a user’s mobility is limited due to either disability, age or environmental hazards. Provided that the user can move his/her eyes properly, an approach that enables control by vision, i.e. eye selection, can be useful.
