The work of “Electronic Space” contest team is “ETRACK-Eye Tracking System”, which is able to lock human eye observation target by detecting human eyes motion locus and computing human eyes gazing direction. The abroad eye tracking technology has gotten certain development, and the products promoted by very few hi-tech enterprises and laboratories in America, Canada, Sweden and Germany monopolize the international market and their prices are very expensive. “Electronic Space” conducted deep research and experiment in the aspect of eye tracking, widely explored moving target tracking, eye control medical equipment and advertising page optimization and finally obtained good achievement.
Although this is the 1st time of XIOPM graduates to participate in this contest, they achieved proud result, which showed their good skills and encouraged all graduates of XIOPM to devote into innovation and entrepreneurship. The Graduate Department, together with Industrial Department, will establish Graduates “Start-up Space” recently so as to ensure favorable development of XIOPM graduates’ innovation and entrepreneurship from platform and system.
