Wink&Talk’s project is based on the domain of High Technology, which brings a mean of communication to people affected by the locked-in syndrome.
Locked-‐in syndrome is a state of complete paralysis in which the person hears and sees everything. He can only use his eyes to communicate.
We will design a communication aiding system, instinctive and easy to use, to detect the movements of eyelids. So we have a restricted language, limited by the lack of possible movements, and we transform it in a rich vocabulary with N possibilities.
There are several systems that use eyes as a mean of communication (My Tobii, ERICA, Eye Gaze, ...), however, the innovative part of our project relies on our software’s intelligence which considers the person’s abilities. In short, the software is customizable by the user.
