Abstract

This paper presents the developing of a low-cost eye-tracking system by modifying the commercial-over-the-shelf camera to integrate with the proper-tuned open source drivers and the user-defined application programs. The system configuration is proposed and the gaze-tracking approximated by the least square polynomial mapping is described. Comparisons between other low-cost systems as well as commercial system are provided. Our system obtained the highest image capturing rate of 180 frames per second, and the ISO 9241-Part 9 test performance favored our system, in terms of Response time and Correct response rate. Currently, we are developing gaze-tracking accuracy application. The real time gaze-tracking and the Head Movement Estimation are the issues in future work.
