In this paper intuitive environment is proposed, image processing software was connected with eye tracking system in order to wirelessly control electric devices. The system use web-cam mounted to wheelchair. Accordingly a set of special markers was designed, each marker means a different device such as doors, window, light and etc. Markers are recognized from video frames that are taken from surroundings. Marker position in a frame is compared with mouse cursor position for intuitive control. Accuracy, speed and reliability experiments took place. System is able to process video frame in less than 0.1 s, 84% accuracy is achieved. Experiments claim that intuitive system for smart home is relevant to be used for real time applications.
