In visual focus capturing for ambient assisted living an algorithm to obtain the visual focus of a person in order to perform mind-controlled service of devices is developed. The main target groups for which the solution is designed are elderly and disabled people; however, the algorithm may be applied to diverse scenarios including logistics, delivery, surgery and more. The work faces current trends and technologies for capturing the visual focus of a person and for mind-controlled building automation systems. The motivation of the work is to combine the two aforementioned fields and create a simple, cheap, efficient and offline system which is able not only to support the main target groups, but also a wide spectrum of other potential users in various application areas. A thorough research and concept verification have shown the optimum approach to be a brain-wave-reading headset combined with a camera module for sensing barcode tagged objects in the area of visual focus.
