Abstract
"EDAptive Computing, Inc. (EDAptive) presents a unique and commercially viable solution to the problem of incorporating a minimally-intrusive eye gaze monitoring system with a helmet mounted virtual display to provide improved human-machine interaction,localized display optimization and display image stabilization. Our RETINA-II (Rapid Eye-Tracking Integrated Application) program will investigate and evaluate a variety of techniques to integrate an eye gaze monitoring system with existing helmet-mounteddisplays (HMD). Specifically, we propose to leverage the features of our RETINAT system, a proven non-intrusive, rapid eye-tracking system developed by EDAptive, including 1) automatic, resolution-dependant accuracy scaling, 2) real-time processing, and 3)efficient and robust performance. By utilizing our existing RETINA technology, we are able bypass many development costs and focus our Phase I effort on the important integration issues, including camera choice, hardware acceleration and variouscommunication interfaces. Our Phase I focus on feasibility assures that we provide a solution that addresses the concerns and meets the requirements set forth in the solicitation. In this proposal we present a focused approach to assess the feasibility ofintegration in Phase I, and prove the concept and prepare for technology transition in the form of a prototype in Phase II. This technology provides groundbreaking opportunities for the Army.
