The inspiration was to help disabled people control their computers hands-free.
What it does
This project allows you to control your mouse with your eyes, blink to click.
How we built it
We built this using C++ and OpenCV
Challenges we ran into
The challenges we ran into were installing the C++ Libraries in the IDE, calibrating the eyes, smoothly controlling the mouse instead of jagged movements, We had to find a better camera because the existing webcam was incredibly bad.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We are proud of detecting and tracking the iris and the eye
What we earned
We learned about using CMake to compile C++ libraries, and how to scale iris position based mouse to screen size.
What's next for EyeScroller
The next thing is to develop a chrome extension for handling settings, and to implement more gestures to recognize more actions.
