Could dogs and cats communicate with people using this eye tracking method? Answered
This post is a few days old. I posted a comment asking the same question on HAD, but I thought it may get more exposure here.
If you've ever noticed, dogs pupils really reflect light, even visible light like from a cars headlights.
I would think this system would be able to track a dog's eye movement as well.
This would need to start out much simpler, to teach the animal to use the system. Perhaps give him 2 choices, in the form of recognizable icons. I am imagining a picture of a steak and a picture of a dog going for a walk. Eventually the dog might learn to recognize the symbols. Once this happens, the interface could be expanded to more choices. I dont know if it would be possible to teach english ( or any other spoken/written language) but maybe.
