The Intelligaze CAM30NT from Alea Technologies, Germany is one of the leading eye gaze cameras of the highest specifications. Combined with a suitable interface a child or adult can operate a computer using only eye control, from an introductory level using specialised software such as Look to Learn, through to multi-tasking with mainstream programs and the advanced Alea Desktop V2.0 on-screen keyboard and mouse controls.
The Intelligaze camera has arrived! Not all eye-gaze systems are the same. This system is designed and manufactured in Germany. It is a sophisticated system with a high tracking rate and excellent working range. It can accommodate rapid or involuntary head movements. As a separate module it can be used with tablet computers, speech generating devices or regular desktop monitors. See Tellus 4 Intelligaze.
There are notably 3 components to a succesful eye-tracking accessing system:
The Intelligaze IG-CAM30NT provides computer operation by eye-gaze control. The system can also be connected to a portable tablet computer such as the Tellus 4, Mobi 2 and Powerbox 7 to provide eye-gaze access for communication. The Intelligaze IG--CAM30NT has been cleverly designed as a stand-alone unit so it can be used with a tablet computer or regular desktop monitor. As computer systems are upgraded, the Intelligaze can be transferred to the new computer. The Intelligaze has been designed from industrial components ensuring a long working life and also good compatibility with future versions of Windows operating systems.
Intelligaze uses the latest camera technology, very sophisticated image processing and calibration methods designed and manufactured by German engineering. It provides a reliable and functional eye gaze input, as it can tolerate natural and involuntary head movement. Having a separate camera also enables it to be transferred easily between computer systems e.g. from a desktop computer at home to one at school or it can be attached to a portable tablet computer such as the Powerbox 7 if the user wishes. The Intelligaze’s German engineering and manufacturing ensures the latest camera technology and sophisticated image processing and calibration methods. The Intelligaze is able to tolerate natural and involuntary head movement.
This system can be used by people with Motor Neurone Disease, Cerebral Palsy, spinal injuries, Muscular Dystrophy and other conditions where operating a computer by other methods such as mouse, switch or touch screen is difficult.
Intelligaze Cam30NT offers two forms of checking "status' of the user.
The Green face offers the most information indicating when the user is in the best position in relation to the camera. The face changes to yellow and red to indicate that the camera sees the person, but the position is not ideal. A cross appears when the camera can no longer detect eyes. The balck and white video of the person can be used if required. This generally does not provide as much information as the coloured face. Some users may have a preferences for one type of feedback over the other.
It is possible to access many mainstream programs using the Intelligaze IG-CAM30NT. Desktop V2.0 is the sophisticated user interface developed by Alea and supplied with the Intelligaze camera. If this is not required it can be by-passed for those not yet ready to operate all aspects of computer software. Below are screen shots of the Desktop V2.0 to illustrate the functions. The menus are accessed by gazing slightly off the monitor to the left, right, top and bottom.
This powerful system integrates eye-gaze control for communication, environment control, internet browsing, email, Facebook, SMS and other options via full Wi-fi and 3G connectivity. With excellent battery power and mounting plate the Tellus 4 Intelligaze is portable.
