Eye-tracking system for assessment of suicide risk

In their master projects, Mr Fakia and Ms Ogris developed an eye-tracking system that is capable of recording various eye parameters, allowing them to asses whether significant differences in eye parameters of people at a risk of suicide can be detected during psychological interviews when compared to people not at risk of suicide. The developed eye-tracking glasses work in the near infrared range to track precise eye patterns and are specifically designed  for the use case of differentiating eye patterns at suicide risk. 

This project is conducted by two institutions: the provincial hospital KABEG and the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences. It contributes to a deeper understanding of the relationships between ocular parameters and suicide risk and could help to develop more effective suicide prevention interventions.
