The Technology

Umoove has created a software-only face and eye tracking technology, built especially to facilitate the challenges in mobile environments such as shakiness, lighting and limited hardware resources. The technology runs at a CPU as low as 5% in real-time and needs nothing but the raw frames of the front-facing camera for input. On top of the core technology, Umoove has developed an interpretation layer which turns the face and eye movements into a language of interaction and valuable data. Umoove’s technology is built on top of unique algorithms and has over fifteen patent files pending.

By nature, the face and eyes are capable of different types of movement; though by tracking both they prove to complement one another. Tracking the face allows intuitive interaction using gentle controlled movements. The eyes, however, move involuntarily; thus making eye-tracking less relevant and natural for interaction and more suitable for deep analysis of patterns and movement as a key to diagnosing brain disorders as well as tracking and imrpoving brain activity.

Umoove’s technology is packaged as two main SDKs; FaceSDK and EyeMovementSDK, both of which are available on iOS and Android. The FaceSDK is currently open to developers who are looking to integrate face-tracking into new or existing apps via a plug and play process. The EyeMovementSDK is in beta stage and is currently open to select strategic partners.
