A head-mounted sensor-based eye tracking device
In this study, a new eye tracking system, namely Eye Touch, is introduced. Eye Touch is based on an eyeglasses-like apparatus on which IrDA sensitive sensors and IrDA light sources are mounted. Using inexpensive sensors and light sources instead of a camera leads to lower system cost and need for the computation power. A prototype of the proposed system is developed and tested to show its capabilities. Based on the test results obtained, Eye Touch is proved to be a promising human-computer interface system.
