COB RealEye Webcam Eye-Tracking Online Dr. Rita To [email protected] Webcam online eye tracking is an innovative method that predicts a human eye gaze point using only webcams as data collectors. RealEye uses the computing power of a regular PC/laptop to run AI (Deep neural network) that analyzes images coming from a webcam. The AI detects a panelists’ pupils movements and predicts the eye gaze point with an accuracy of ~110px. What does it mean? Simplicity and efficiency! To use eye tracking and successfully run a study you don’t need any additional eye tracking device.

MCOE Battery Load Unit RELLIS Campus-Capstone Lab Nourouddin Sharifi [email protected] Battery Load Unit (Model: BLU100L) is a battery capacity tester which is the latest solution from DV Power Inc for conducting a comprehensive battery capacity test. This universal instrument is applicable to any battery string, such as lead-acid, Li-Ion, Ni-Cd, and others, with voltages up to 300 V DC. BLU-L tester simplifies battery testing in multiple ways. The instrument provides monitoring of discharge parameters (graphically and numerically) in real-time on a 5.7-inch color touch-screen display. The instrument also enables the measurement and monitoring of cell parameters (voltage/intercell voltage/temperature), which makes it a complete stand-alone discharge test system. It is capable of handling four discharge modes: constant current, constant power, constant resistance, and constant voltage. The equipment can provide cycling charging and discharging. The equipment has size of 440 × 221 × 355 mm and weight of 12.8 kg. The resolution for 0-300V DC voltage and 0-300A DC current are 0.1V and 0.1A, respectively. The typical accuracy for voltage is ± 0.5% of reading ± 0.1 V and for current is ± (0.5 % of reading + 0.1 A).
