Contexte initial

The computing power limitation of classical software solutions leads to a more powerful conception and future proof system based on dedicated hardware by FPGA technology. Such a concept shall permit to connect up to 6 cameras allowing to generate a binocular 3d eye model. Although its complexity, this enables the eye tracking system to achieve a very high stability and precision with a calibration-less setup.


Project goal is to develop an outdoor eye tracking system with scene overlay. Due to its field of application, system miniaturization and processing speed are the key elements of this project.

Compétences clés

Sensors, imaging, hardware-algorithms, high-speed and wearable multicamera plattform, miniaturization by ASIC and FPGA.
