Abstract

Gaze interaction with telerobots is a new opportunity for wheelchair users with severe motor disabilities. We present a video showing how head-mounted displays (HMD) with gaze tracking can be used to monitor a robot that carries a 360? video camera and a microphone. Our interface supports autonomous driving via way-points on a map, along with gaze-controlled steering and gaze typing. It is implemented with Unity, which communicates with the Robot Operating System (ROS).
