Sure, I am researching on Human-Computer Interaction, specifically Fundamental Research on Eye Tracking.

This includes algorithms for feature detection, which is basically computer vision, a lot of coding, statistics... I also work with hardware, so I have to know electronics and physics.

I've always been interested in projects that involve both hardware and software. What types of projects have you done with hardware?

Basically, we work with sensing (cameras), screens and illumination. The goals of our hardware design are more focused on getting the proper data for analysis, feature extraction and interaction design. All this are heavily based on the requirements of the project we are involved in, and so they are pretty variated.

Something external that we work on as well is camera synchronization through electronic means (not software). Many of the projects we work on need to use several different cameras, and we need to know that the images have been "sensed" at the same time.
