ECTtracker is an eye-tracking AAC program, allowing the real-time analysis of the user's eye (open or closed). ECTtracker implements low cost computer mediated communication for people suffering from various forms of paralysis.
Version: 16.9.11ECTtracker (EyeComTec Tracker) is eye-tracking software, which allows identifying the current state of the eyes of the user (open or closed).
Operating System: Windows
This software can be used in conjunction with different video-capturing applications for web-cameras or other devices connected to PC (e.g. ECTcamera, Skype, Media Player).
ECTtracker assigns different states of the user's eyes with selected key codes, which can be transmitted to any other controlling application (ECTkeyboard, ECTmorse and many others).
This program is really flexible and adjustable, as well as portative and can be personalized for any specific user and performance characteristics of the computer.
In fact, ECTtracker is an alternative way of smart computer vision realization.
Unlike many other programs with similar functionality, ECTtracker analyzes images using the special Matrix of Samples, which is unique for any specific user and environment (camera position, illumination conditions, etc.).
The program can be used by both fully paralyzed patients and those who suffer from uncontrollable muscular activity (tremors, tics).
ECTtracker provides assured tracking of the current state of the eye even for those patients with physical damages of the face - injuries, burns or post-operative states.
The program is really flexible and customizable.
The user can set the image recognition structure, the matching level between images and samples, the video processing speed (in frames per second), idle time for cases when there's no image and key codes to be transmitted into third-party controlling applications. The software contains more than 50 different parameters, which can be used to change the appearance and functionality of ECTtracker.
Some parameters allow the user to lower computing requirements, providing stable work even on computers with low performance levels.
ECTtracker is a highly practical and convenient application due to its ability to adapt to the physical condition of the user.
