Abstract:
    The medical field is producing new ways to solve health issues. Hence, an optically controlled script developer (aka eyewriter) will allow patients to communicate through eyes to convey their message.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Health issues are the fundamental issues in a society. Paralysis is a much common disease. So, the eyewriter will be helpful in situations like that. People having paralysis will be able to at least tell their doctors or other family members that what they need or how are they feeling.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   According to a study, nearly 1 in 50 people living in paralysis, which is about 5.4 million people all over the world. If our idea turns into a reality, it will benefit all of these people. So, basically 1 in 50 people living will get benefit from this idea.
How will the solution works
    Optically controlled script developer (aka eyewriter) is basically a Digital Image Processing based project, which further uses computer vision techniques to complete its working. The retina of eye will be used to track down the gaze of the patient, which will be helpful in determining which character does the patient wants to select on the on screen keyboard provided to the patient. The gaze will be detected using the pictures taken by the camera and then processing these pictures.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    TEMPTONE made by various groups of people is something similar to our project. But it only provides the user to use grafiti as a source of conveying message which is very much tidious. We are taking this to another level, providing an oscreen keyboard will help patient to literaly type with eyes.
