PhD project by Antoine Favre-Félix

Name: Antoine Favre-Félix
Project Title: Controlling a hearing aid by electrically assessed eye-gaze
Group: Hearing Systems
Supervisor: Torsten Dau, Thomas Lunner

Project Description:

This PhD project focuses on technologies that can help fulfilling the goal of steering the hearing aid by in-the-ear electrical signals. In particular, another electrical signal obtained from the EEG-electrodes will be considered: The Electroocculography (EOG) signal. It is proposed to steer the hearing-aid signal processing to the intended source of interest via the EOG signal which represents an electrical measure of the eye position that is measured as a voltage difference between electrodes placed typically on either side of the head near the eyes. 
The results of this project are expected to provide the basis for advanced signal processing strategies in hearing instruments that enable the hearing-aid to selectively transmit sound coming from the direction the listener is selectively attending to.

The project is partly conducted at Eriksholm Research Centre  and supported by COCOHA
