The Eye+ is designed and developed by Mr. Uday Sagale and Mr. Mahadev Karad (Master of Technology, VIT, Pune, India) under the guidance of Prof. Ganesh Bhutkar based on the HCI research at Department of Computer Engineering,Vishwakarma Institute of Technology,Pune,India in association with Mr. Nikhil Jathar and his team member Mr. Nishant Patil at ‘AvanSaber Technologies Pvt. Ltd., Pune, India’. Avansaber has tested, packaged and launched the Eye+ App. It is thoroughly tested with visually impaired students under observation of Mr. Dhananjay Bhole. We are thankful to Mr. Vishal Mehta for his suggestions during early stages of product design.
"Eye+ can also be helpful for normal sighted people in saving time as speaking message is faster than typing it. Also normal sighted user may not be able to look at mobile phone screen under some circumstances like extreme lighting, multitasking, walking and others."
