How will the solution works
    The device will be mounted onto the output link of an eight-bar parallel manipulator, the input link of which is a gear. Input gear is coupled to a brushed DC motor for the rotation of which the output link makes a figure eight trajectory (8), as does the users head in the plane perpendicular to line of sight. This ensures relative movement between device and user is cancelled out. Our parallel manipulator will adopt visual servoing based control, by motion-tracking the user’s head.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Our product will be a completely new one. No competition exists in the market so far.
