EyeTech Digital Systems has been announced as a winner in the Edge AI and Vision Product of the Year Awards by the Edge AI and Vision Alliance. EyeTech’s EyeOn eye-tracking tablet earned the 2021 Best Consumer Edge AI End Product award, which recognizes innovation in systems and applications for products delivered directly to the consumer market by leading companies leveraging edge AI and computer vision technologies. Nominations for Best Consumer Edge AI End Product, an award category introduced this year, were evaluated based on innovation, impact on customers and the market, and competitive differentiation by an independent, expert panel of judges.
The AI-enabled EyeOn device empowers users to communicate, control their environments, search the web, work, and learn independently—all hands-free, using the power of their eyes. With screen control enablement via built-in, predictive eye-tracking, EyeOn gives a voice to impaired and nonverbal individuals with conditions such as ALS, autism, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, Rett syndrome, stroke, and spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries. EyeOn’s on-board FPGA data-processing chip enables user-driven calibration, which helps the device learn how to better serve each individual by using AI to modify and adjust the existing system to better fit their needs. To date, the EyeTech platform has enabled over 10,000 individuals to regain independence through precision eye-tracking technology.
“The Edge AI and Vision Product of the Year Awards recognize the most innovative and impactful new products using edge AI and computer vision,” Jeff Bier, founder of the Edge AI and Vision Alliance, said in a news release. “We congratulate EyeTech Digital Systems on our judging panel’s selection of its EyeOn eye-tracking tablet as the best Consumer Edge AI End Product of 2021.”
“The team at EyeTech is wholeheartedly committed to our mission to bring a greater quality of life and sense of inclusion to end-users of our EyeOn device,” said EyeTech Founder and Chief Science Officer Robert Chappell. “EyeOn removes some of the most challenging obstacles to independent and reliable communication for those with speech limitations. It is truly a privilege to serve this community and a distinct honor to be recognized by the Edge AI and Vision Alliance.”
