Dr Mick Donegan, SMARTlab’s Adjunct Professor of Multimodal Interfaces and Assistive Technologies, and Co-PI of the SMARTlab InterFACES research project, has co-written a new book, Gaze Interaction and Application of Eye Tracking: Advances in Assistive Technologies, recently published by IGI Global.
Recent advances in eye-tracking technology will allow for a proliferation of new applications. Improvements in interactive methods using eye movement and gaze control could result in faster and more efficient human–computer interfaces, benefiting users with and without disabilities.
Gaze Interaction and Application of Eye Tracking: Advances in Assistive Technologies focuses on interactive communication and control tools based on gaze tracking, including eye typing, computer control and gaming, with special attention given to assistive technologies. For researchers and practitioners interested in the applied use of gaze tracking, the book offers instructions for building a basic eye tracker from off-the-shelf components, gives practical hints on building interactive applications, presents smooth and efficient interaction techniques, and summarises the results of effective research on cutting-edge gaze-interaction applications.
The book can be purchased in whole or in part via the IGI Global website.
