From the eyes of the patient: real time gaze control of medical training mannequins
MetadataShow full item record
The eyes are a central point of interaction between humans in all sorts of situations - including clinical diagnosis. While modern medical training mannequins provide a high level of realism when it comes to e.g. Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) procedures, the overall fidelity of the training is strongly limited by dead eyes and the subsequent lack of interaction with the simulated patients. While actuated robotic eyes are available on the market the question remains on how to make them behave in a natural way, especially in a diagnosis context. In this article we present a solution based on head mounted device that not only gives an operator the live-view of the mannequin, but also tracks their eye movement which is directly translated into a movement of the robotic eyes.
