‘IRISBOND’ is building solutions to allow controlling robots and systems using your eyes

 

IRISBOND emerges from a close collaboration with the VICOMTECH Foundation, a member of the IK4 Research Alliance. Leading one of its applied research lines in artificial vision, VICOMTECH-IK4 develops a system based on the Eye Tracking principle, permitting accurate computer control by eye movement. Its direct application in the world of disability, and more specifically for people with reduced mobility, is the starting point for a course that purports to explore new developments in favor of assisted communication.

IRISBOND concentrates on the development of systems based on assisted communication technologies, such as Eye Tracking, applied to different sectors, including disability, industrial integration or scientific applications with global outreach. Technical leadership and personalized advisory are the main pillars of IRISBOND.

It’s a game of chess like no other. Marga de la Torre has multiple sclerosis and has difficulty moving pieces on a chess board – but now, simply by looking at different parts of a computer screen, she can control an ABB robot to move the pieces for her. The demonstration, in the Basque Country region of Spain, is the first practical result of a collaboration project between ABB and Irisbond, who came together through the Basque government’s “BIND 4.0” program linking established technology companies with innovative start-ups.
