1) Eye tracker for surgical microscope
2) Hands-free robotic navigator
3) Gaze tracking for Telesurgery

Current Projects

1) EyeMic, a binocular eye tracker that can be attached on top of any microscope ocular. (Video link)

This is the first step towards unrestricted eye tracking in microscopy procedures for development of future gaze-contingent microscope control systems.

2) A Head and Eye Tracking method for Hands-free Control of a Robotic system. (video link)

We are developing a head and gaze-contingent robotic exoscope for camera viewpoint automation.

3) Gaze-Telesurgery for the SECTIO CHIRURGICA platform.

Here we are developing a live gaze tracking system to be used for online training of surgeons.
