WeST reveices Horizon 2020 research grant for computer interaction by eye movement and mental commands

[go to overview]

Many disabled people cannot use computers. They lack the motor coordination needed for handling a keyboard, computer mouse or touchscreen.

The new EU project MAMEM aims to empower these individuals to use computers. It investigates how computers can be used despite reduced motor coordination, mainly by eye movement and mental commands.

In this project, partners from research and industry work together across several European countries. The Institute WeST contributes its expertise in eye tracking and develops algorithms that convert biometric user data into concrete input commands.

The 3­year term project starts in May 2015 and is part of the Horizon 2020 programme by the European Union.
