Smartbox is a UK-based company that develops assistive technology products to help children and adults with disabilities communicate and live more independently.
One of their key products is Lumin-i, a powerful and precise eye-tracker used by people with disabilities to help them interact with assistive technology. Used alongside a Grid Pad communication aid, Lumin-i allows people to take full control of a cursor using eye movement. Users can interact with communication tools, control devices around the home, play music, send emails, and much more.
Smartbox needed an eye-tracking technology that could reliably track eye movements, even in challenging environments, to make their products as accessible and effective as possible for people with disabilities.
