Abstract

Humans live in, and interact with, a very complex and multi-sensory environment. Yet, one parcels efficiently the incoming information through attention mechanisms. Even if restricted to the visual sensory system alone, full understanding of one’s perception often implies a suitable identification of that person’s direction of gaze. There is a considerable amount of new and commercially available eye tracking devices. We investigate the use of a mobile phone to acquire precise information on the direction of gaze, in a controlled visual stimulation environment. The main advantages of the proposed new approach are its price, ease of use and ubiquitous availability. The results attained in this proof-of-concept study display fairly high accuracy and precision for the estimation of the direction of gaze.
