Ñawy Harkay was created to help handicaped people operating computers using their eyes. This project was motivated by the need to integrate handicaped people into the digitalization waves happening across the world. The novel creation consisted of a pair of glasses with a small camera that capture the eye movement and use it as an input for movement on screens (blinking was used for clicking). The solution was built using eural networks and artificial vision methods.
This project won the Imagine Cup 2011 Peru and competed in the Imagine Cup World Finals 2011 in New York. It was developed by team Gedav (Bruno Espinoza, Jose Damian, Maria Palacin and Roberto Reto) guided by Prof. Eduardo Alonso.
