Our relationship with e-con, including the expertise and service it provided consistently throughout every stage of development, is an exponential value-add, and frankly we wouldn’t be on the market and selling now without e-con Systems contributions.
Lubbock, Texas (PRWEB) November 17, 2014
Grinbath Inc. has announced the EyeGuide® Mobile Tracker is available for shipping. The new EyeGuide® Mobile Tracker, built upon a foundation of innovative technology, ongoing iterative user experience (UX) testing, and critical feedback from usability leaders, brings to market best-of-class and truly mobile eye tracking. Thanks to Grinbath’s partnership with e-con Systems, the Mobile Tracker features a powerful, built-in operating system, 6+ hours of continuous recording, a 720p HD scene camera providing a 90 degree horizontal field of view — an industry best, to cover the user’s entire natural field of view, a hot mirror with IR-reflective coating for calibration and tracking vision without obstruction, and a comfortable, sturdy headset design to provide hours of stable and comfortable testing.
“e-con Systems provided us with vital electrical engineering resources at a critical point in our research and development process,” said Dr. Brian Still, Grinbath’s chairman and co-founder. “e-con integrated its team seamlessly into ours at the beginning of early prototyping in 2012. From there it built and tested the key electronic components that enabled the Mobile Tracker to be an innovative eye tracking platform. At later stages e-con went the extra mile to provide assembly and fulfillment services. Our relationship with e-con, including the expertise and service it provided consistently throughout every stage of development, is an exponential value-add, and frankly we wouldn’t be on the market and selling now without e-con Systems contributions.”
The EyeGuide® Mobile Tracker was designed for precision and flexibility, providing users with eye tracking technology to use in almost any environment. With the ability to be truly mobile, users can now introduce eye tracking innovations into sports research and live events, medical research and devices, video game testing and gameplay, academic studies, military research and training, and much more. Not being anchored to a desk also means the technology within the EyeGuide® Mobile Tracker can be introduced to a variety of innovative applications.
“It is another success story for our Product Design Services team to have worked very closely with our customer Grinbath from concept till production. As with any product development, the EyeGuide® development also had its own share of challenges and e-con has leveraged its expertise in product design to overcome the challenges and get the finished product in the hands of our customer Grinbath,” said Mr Ashok Babu President of e-con Systems. “There is no other better recognition for a Product Design Services company than to see the product that we have developed, in the market and our end customers using them”, he added.
“From the simple customization of our e-CAM51_USB camera without any idea of the final product, e-con has gained the confidence of Grinbath to get a complete understanding of the EyeGuide® product and that provided an opportunity for our e-con team to work closely with Grinbath as their extended engineering team to be responsible for this complete product development. Leveraging its decade long experience in Product Design Services, e-con offered design solutions at every stage from engineering design, certification testing to manufacturing. e-con has coordinated the design, engineering and manufacturing activities on behalf of Grinbath for not just design, development and testing of this product but also manufacture and supply the first batch of EyeGuide® units to Grinbath”, said Maheshwari, Head of System Design, e-con Systems. “All this was possible due to continuous support from Grinbath and the confidence shown in our expertise, without which it would have not just been possible”, she added, underlining the spirit of Outsourced Product Development that has been demonstrated by Grinbath and e-con teams.
“The possibilities for using eye tracking in sports, medicine, gaming, and other areas become endless now that the EyeGuide® technology can fit within existing products, such as helmets and medical devices,” said Dr. Nathan Jahnke, Grinbath’s chief scientist. “We want to give people the opportunity to experience amazing eye tracking technology, and benefit by integrating it with products they are already comfortable using each and every day.”
