AbstractGaze detection can be a useful ingredient in generic human computer interfaces if current technical barriers are overcome. We discuss the feasibility of concurrent posture and eye-tracking in the context of single (low cost) camera imagery. The ingredients in the approach are posture and eye region extraction based on active appearance modeling and eye tracking using a new fast and robust heuristic. The eye tracker is shown to perform well for low resolution image segments, hence, making it feasible to estimate gaze using a single generic camera.
