Teltow/Germany November 1, 2012 – SensoMotoric Instruments GmbH (SMI) of Germany, a global leader in eye-tracking technology for more than 20 years, announces the integration of their remote eye tracking technology into one of the leading solutions for augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) by Prentke Romich Company (PRC), USA. PRC is the leading global developer of AAC technology for individuals with speech disabilities. The integration of eye gaze control into PRC’s Accent™ platform is a result of close collaboration between SMI and PRC. Watch video!

PRC recently released the NuEye™ Tracking System - the most precise eye-gaze accessory for the company’s new Accent 1200 device. Attaching the NuEye Tracking System to the Accent 1200 speech‐output device gives users the ability to operate the communication device’s robust capabilities using just their eyes. Eye tracking technology by SensoMotoric Instruments (SMI) powering the NuEye specifically fulfills the needs of the AAC market. The NuEye device automatically determines optimal single or double-eye tracking strategies based on user capabilities. The device also accommodates eyeglasses and contact lenses. Various calibration options support increased accuracy as the user’s eye control capabilities improve. NuEye attaches in seconds to PRC’s Accent 1200 and works completely contact-free. A large trackbox area accommodates a wide range of user head movement. The NuEye is compact, lightweight and offers very low power consumption which makes the eye-gaze device completely portable.

David Moffatt, President and CEO of PRC: “The team at SMI worked closely with our engineering and product development staff and end users to create a solution that fits the needs of our clients and our business. The result is the integration of an accurate and highly reliable eye-gaze system into our Accent 1200 device. This solution will improve the lives of many individuals with disabilities.”
