Abstract:

We propose a novel approach for gaze estimation without direct observation ofthe eyes. This ability is commonly exhibited in everyday life, when the gaze direction of a person at a distance is determined even when their eyes cannot be directly observed. Physiological research has suggested that this ability may rely on implicit knowledge of the coordination of the eyes and head, enabling the estimation of gaze direction. We propose a method in which information regarding the motion of the eyes and head is collected, and the system is trained to extract temporal relations as a measure of eye-head coordination. This information is then used to estimate gaze direction from the head pose sequence.
