At Realeyes, we build emotion recognition software, using facial coding via webcams directly through the browser. Our technology enables brands and content creators to see how their audience feels in response to their video, so from a technological perspective we believe that that’s quite special – it’s not something that many software companies do everyday. Webcams are everwhere, but the devices they’re on pose many dimensions which makes testing these applications an interesting challenge.
We ended up creating our own Selenium Grid, as providers like BrowserStack did not provide support for webcams and customizations with a function to Allow webcam with Flash. We did not aim to create a wide variety of home made environments, rather focusing on advantages of our own Grids and using external providers where possible.
