Graphical User Interface, Eye Aspect Ratio, Blink Detector, Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC)


This paper explains the development of Graphical User Interface (GUI) by taking eye-blink as input. This method of communication between a user and a device employing this GUI can prove to be useful to a larger extent as compared to hand-controlled mechanisms since, hand-controlled devices require the user to possess the ability to control the device using their limbs. Hand-controlled devices are inconvenient to those users who are unable to control the movements of their arms (e.g. aged individuals), unable to move them at all (in case of paralyzed patients or patients suffering from Motor Neuron Diseases (MNDs) like Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)) and amputees. A device using a GUI that requires eye-blink as input will be a more convenient option for such individuals; particularly the ones suffering from MNDs, since, most of the MND patients have difficulties with speech or cannot speak in addition to loss of mobility of limbs. The GUI described in this paper iteratively displays options related to the daily activities that an MND patient needs to communicate to his/her caretaker. We propose taking eye-blink as input using a blink detector to control the selection of an option displayed on the GUI for an Augmentative and Alternative Communication System.
