Remote Visual Explorer
The Remote Visual Explorer is designed to be an intuitive and natural extension of the human vision system. By integrating an eye-tracking monitor and a camera on a pant-tilt mechanism it allows an individual to explore a remote location. The user simply sits in front of the monitor, which is showing a full-screen image of what the camera sees, and looks around, causing the pan-tilt mechanism to center on what the user is focusing on. Various methods of zooming exist, including focus duration, voice control, keyboard control, distance between eyes and monitor, and retina size. The user can also save and restore points of interest.
