ITU Gaze Tracker
ITU Gaze Tracker Review
- Name of the technology: ITU Gaze Tracker
- Link: http://www.gazegroup.org/downloads/23-gazetracker
- Price: Free
- Popularity: Yesterday, 23rd November, we reached the impressive amount of 10.000 downloads of the binaries of our open-source gaze tracker from SourceForge. This happens approximately one and a half years since we made our first release, back in April 2009. Furthermore, the trend shows an increase of downloads every month, which encourages us to continue the development of the software to add new features and make it as robust as possible.
- Minimal physical requirements: The patient has to be able to move his eyes freely.
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 requirements to run the ITU Gaze Tracker are:
- Windows XP with Service Pack 2
- .NET Framework 3.5 SP1
- A webcam or videocamera with nightvision and infrared illumination (check supported hardware)
- A fairly decent computer
