Eye blink detection? Possible?


The Pixy looks cool! I’m looking for a computer-less image detection system to detect eyeblinks reliably in a range of conditions (glasses, dim light etc). This is for people with locked-in syndrome etc. We are doing a lot of work on the arduino at present - so a Pixy+Arduino looks like a good idea. The only thing is I have no idea how possible it would be to detect blinking using something like a pixy. Any ideas?


Hello Will,
Detecting blinks is probably beyond Pixy’s current capabilities (sorry). It could possibly be done with custom algorithm and firmware development.
