Haptic Gaze Interaction (HAGI)

The HAGI project works in the field of human-technology interaction, more specifically multimodal interaction techniques. The project will begin with basic research on combining of eye-pointing and haptic interaction. The basic research findings are then applied in the constructive research process in two areas: augmentative and alternative communication systems and interaction with mobile devices. It is expected that haptic interaction will make it possible to apply gaze-based user interfaces in mobile devices much better than what has been possible in the past, and therefore open new opportunities for natural and efficient interaction.

HAGI is a four year project (Sep 2012 - Aug 2016), funded by the Academy of Finland.
