The article reports that Qinetiq PLC has commercialized what is claimed to be the world's first lightweight portable eye tracking system following a deal with a vision technology specialist of the U.S. The British research giant has licensed the global manufacturing and marketing rights for its Mobile Eye technology to Boston-based Applied Science Laboratories. Mobile Eye, which emerged from Qinetiq's research into "look and fire" systems for fighter pilots, will now be used for eye tracking applications in areas such as sports training and medicine.
