Projektpraktikum "Eye and Brain Computer Interfaces"

Does the novel interaction technologies fascinates you? Do you aspire to work on the user-centered applications with natural interfaces?  This winter term, the Institute for Web Science and Technologies (WeST) offers a unique opportunity for students to get involved in the future technologies with natural interfaces that can benefit the society. The objective is to move beyond the traditional input devices such as keyboard-mouse, and develop application interfaces to be controlled via user’s eye and mind. The bigger goal is to assist disabled people in interacting with computer applications, which is in the scope of European research project MAMEM

In this Praktikum, you are expected to transform a web-based application interface (web search/maps/social networks/games) to interactive settings so the end users could control the necessary operations via eye movements. In this Praktikum you would extend similar input operations (scroll, select, drag, click, type, zoom etc.) with gaze-based interaction to control the interface parameters. Moreover you would analyze how BCI (brain computer interface) could compliment the gaze-based interaction. You would explore cognitive state using reactive and passive BCI, which could provide different mind states of cognitive load, switching attention, event noticed, surprised, committed error during the eye-based interaction with the scenario application. These signals might potentially help minimizing error in gaze based commands and improve the performance. For the purpose, we would provide you state of the art interactive devices e.g. eyetracker and brain computer interface with SDK. The project would cover the software engineering aspects as well as provide enough research scope for innovative ideas.
