"Enhanced Hybrid Electromyogram / Eye Gaze Tracking Cursor Control System for Hands-Free Computer Interaction", (2006)
Chin, C., and Barreto, A.

ABSTRACT: This paper outlines the development and initial testing of a new hybrid computer cursor control system based on Eye Gaze Tracking (EGT) and electromyogram (EMG) processing for hands-free control of the computer cursor. The ultimate goal of the system is to provide an efficient computer interaction mechanism for individuals with severe motor disabilities (or specialized operators whose hands are committed to other tasks, such as surgeons, pilots, etc.) The paper emphasizes the enhancements that have been made on different areas of the architecture, with respect to a previous prototype developed by our group, and demonstrates the performance improvement verified for some of the enhancements.
