An Iranian knowledge-based company managed to manufacture a device for tracking eye movements, a process widely used in medicine, psychology and business.
The company, staffed by young graduates of domestic universities, has designed and developed two models of an eye tracking device.
The system, one of whose models includes a fixed-head device, can record data at a speed of 200 frames per second.
Eye tracking is the process of measuring either the point of gaze or the motion of an eye relative to the head. An eye tracker is a device for measuring eye positions and movements. Eye trackers are used in research on the visual system, in psychology, in psycholinguistics, marketing, as an input device for human-computer interaction, and in product design.
The Iranian administration has ramped up efforts in recent years to support local knowledge-based companies by creating incentives for them, such as low-interest loans.
In September 2015, President Hassan Rouhani said knowledge-based companies can play a major role in boosting the country’s economy and preventing brain drain.
