The Bioengineering Research Parternship lead by The Center for Vision Science and Technology received a supplementary grant from NIH to purchase new equipment. This new grant will allow the purchase of a high-performance computer system to develop motion algorithms for low-vision displays. The grant will also allow the purchase of a saccade-contingent eye tracker for testing the new algorithms when subjects move their eyes.
