Smart glasses built with such bi-directional OLEDs could track the wearer's eye movements as they are recorded by the sensor for guidance and control functions.
The research institute will be showcasing a prototype at Augmented World Expo Europe (AWE) taking place in Berlin, October 18th – 19th.
Such bi-directional OLED microdisplays could support hands-free eye-controlled operation in augmented-reality applications sporting see-trough glasses. Fraunhofer FEP's current generation of colour bi-directional microdisplays offers SVGA resolution (800×600×RGBW), an image quality sufficient to find good use in AR.
Project partners Interactive Minds and Mecotec have developed application software for guide-by-eye control. The displays are available as part of various evaluation kits for industry partners to test out their own ideas.
