As time goes on, more and more input devices (trackpads, trackballs, head and eye tracking devices, etc.) are being introduced that allow computer users to move the cursor. While most of these devices are fairly cheap, some can cost in the thousands of dollars. The input device our team is interested in is the Intel RealSense SR300, a head and eye tracking input camera. This input device would be used by individuals that suffered from a high spinal-cord injury but are fully functional from the neck up. Since this is a fairly new device, we need to come up with a solution to test its efficiency compared to other input devices.
Evaluation Software for Computer Application Methods won third prize in the 2017 RESNA Student Design Competition. Judges’ comments included:
- Simple application to address targeting pathways for mouse use
- Appreciate ability to assess efficiency of movement, not just targeting
- Desire to allow open source use of software is admirable and to be commended
