Innovation & Entrepreneurship
R&D of our innovative ideas in-house, turning
them into cutting edge technologies,
deployment via spin-offs & partners.
Our eye-based platform got excellent feedback from
clients. It enables a wide range of markets: consumer, enterprise, IOT, automotive, security & medical.
The Eye-Tech Platform
We have developed a cutting edge platform (system and algorithms), designed especially to acquire a person’s eye-dynamics and analyze them.
Our Eye-Dynamics signals include a combination of both pupil dilation dynamics, blinking dynamics and eye movement dynamics.
Eye-Dynamics are influenced by a variety of factors: light, sound, medical condition, fatigue, excitement, stress, cognitive load, personal characteristics etc. These factors create variations in Eye-Dynamics within and between users. Based on more than 12 years of experience with eye movement, we apply an innovative holistic approach, which helped us develop special algorithms, which consider these factors in our analysis, thus obtaining great results. We are constantly working on improving our Eye-Tech platform.
Our Eye-Tech platform is capable of acquiring images using a USB, VGA video sensor at 30-240 Hz. An Eye-Dynamic signal is calculated from the video using our own propriety eye-tracking algorithms. Our eye-tracking system delivers a very high sub-pixel resolution of 0.05 pixels. It is able to detect even very small eye-movements of 3'. In addition to its high resolution tracking, our system delivers an excellent dynamic response. In contrary to most eye-tracking systems, our propriety algorithms focus on preserving the Eye-Dynamics signal characteristics.
100's of Features
Based on our high precision and unique eye-tracking system, and its rich Eye-Dynamics response, we have extracted, explored and developed many new parameters from our Eye-Dynamics signal.
Beyond "Just" Eye-Tracking
The extracted parameters reflect and quantify different attributes of the user. Thus these innovative parameters open the door for using the Eye-Dynamic signals for many new & exciting Applications.
Our core technology is compact, elegant and affordable. Accordingly, it can be used in stand-alone products, deployed in existing products and be used as an add on to a PC, laptop, goggles (VR) or a mobile device. Thus our Eye-Tech core technology, enables deploying eye based application in a wide range of existing and new target markets (consumer, enterprise, IOT, automotive, security & medical and more).
The eyes may serve as an easy access interface to many brain activities, providing various exciting applications
Lie Detection - EyeLie™
PooW is developing an enhanced performance lie detector, which detects lies by analyzing the user’s Eye-Dynamics. It requires only a camera, a screen and a processor with our propriety protocols and algorithms.
The EyeLie™ technology has successfully completed external tests that prove it is an excellent tool for lie detection. The tests were designed and conducted by the Israeli Prime Minister Office (Israel State Security) at his facilities. The test was a blind test, thus PooW did not know how many participants were lying, and which of the participants was lying.
The results prove that the EyeLie™ technology can detect liars with high sensitivity, specificity and accuracy (93%).
Furthermore, the technology exhibited high performance in both auditory protocols and in visual based protocols.
User Interface - EyeCon™
Solution at A Glance
Imagine a magical user interface, where things happen merely by the user looking at something. This is exactly what the EyeCon™ technology delivers, thus enabling a totally new user-experience.
We offer an innovative, intriguing, intuitive and fun way to interact and play. Our EyeCon™ technology (patent pending) introduces a natural user-interface based on the user's Eye-Dynamics.
Biometric Identification - EyeDentify™
Not More of the Same
Each of us has unique Eye-Movements.
Our technology is based on using a user's unique eye-movement signal as a biometric signature that can identify him uniquely. The person to be identified (user) watches a moving target (visual stimulus) on a screen, while the camera acquires the user's eye-dynamic response; a processing unit, analyzes the signals and creates a unique identification signature that identifies the user.
Spoof Proof - Virtually Impossible to Fake
Unlike existing biometrics that use unchanging patterns, which can be stolen (for example fingerprint, face, iris), our technology is based on dynamic patterns, making it virtually impossible to fool. The system present to the user a different stimulus each time he approaches the system; thus his response is different each approach. This dynamic and real-time nature of the system implies that the technology includes a built-in liveness detection mechanism, thus it assures that faking of a user's response is virtually impossible, thus spoofing the system is also virtually impossible.
Medical Tools - EyeMed™
The EyeMed™ Markets
Eye-movements relate closely to the functional integrity of the injured brain, thus they can be recruited for many neurological and cognitive medical tasks such as diagnostics, monitoring and treatment of patients.
Accordingly, eye-movements may be used for diagnosis for brain-related disorder and injuries such as Alzheimer, Parkinson, Schizophrenia, ADHD, Chronic pain, Depression, Concussion and more. Furthermore, eye-movements may be used, after the diagnosis step, to monitor the progress of the patient with time and to assess his response to different treatments and medications. Thus eye-movement monitoring can be a powerful tool to develop new treatments and medication. Eye-movements may also be used for monitoring patients in pain, comma or under anesthesia. In addition, special protocols and exercises (eye-based) can be used in some cases as part of a treatment procedure for the patient.
Profiling - EyeAm™
Who “Am Eye”??
The Eyes as a Window to a Person's Soul
We know it!
The eyes are considered by many as a window to a person's soul. This saying is backed up by the tight connection between a person's eye dynamics and his cognitive state, current state of mind and personal characteristics. Knowing a person's state of mind can be used for many exciting applications.
