For several years now we have not had an eyegaze driving system for powered wheelchair driving. Evergreen Circuits started from a challenge made by Steve Gleason, who has ALS, to be able to drive his powered wheelchair with just his eyes. Everegreen Circuits picked up the concept/challenge and partnered with Team Gleason and Every 90 Minutes to create Independence Drive, which uses a tablet computer and tracking camera and software that turns your eye movement into a virtual joystick.
With their current system, you can use a compatible AAC or a separate tablet computer.
This new driving system enables many people who were not able to use a traditional joystick or current alternative drive controls to independently move a powered wheelchair through life along with powered seating controls.
