Contexte initial

The hardware platform connects two cameras and supports simultaneous capturing with a frame rate of 120fps. Based on the comparison of various image processing algorithm results for eye-tracking realized in Matlab/Simulink, the challenge is to research a robust and efficient eye-tracking concept, ready to be implemented in our outdoor eye-tracking platform. With the usage of two eye-cameras, an autonomous calibration for glass movements shall be investigated.


The requested high mobility of the device, system miniaturization is the key element of this project. A prototype system with eye cameras and an overlay scene camera are integrated into commercial available sports glasses.
