We develop novel eye-gaze tracking technologies in order to make eye-gaze tracking technology ubiquitously available for improved natural user interaction (NUI).
In particular, we investigate two approaches:
- Active IR lighting: We investigate the possibility of using multiple IR lights around a display. The key idea is to use many (more than 4) IR lights distributed around a monitor border.
- RGB + Depth: We leverage both RGB camera and depth sensor already available in Kinect or next-generation sensors. The key idea is to combine 3D head tracking and eye-gaze detection, which increases the working volume and flexibility.
