At Ace Centre we have just launched an application that uses your webcam to detect when a user blinks. The application then triggers a switch press. This allows users who can’t access a physical switch or eye tracking to communicate using their chosen communication software.
We are really excited about the real world impact EyeCommander is already having and we would love to have more people contributing to the open source codebase
EyeCommander is an Electron app with a React frontend. It uses Mediapipe, which is a collection of pretrained ML models for landmark detection in videos, provided by Google. It is cross platform so you can get up and running on whatever platform you use.
