Human Eye Tracking Using Particle Filters

Elham Ghasemi-Dehkordi, Mahmoud Mahlouji and Hossein Ebrahimpour- Komleh

In this paper, an effective method for human eye tracking and also decreasing the current challenges and problems in its algorithms has been proposed. In this method, firstly face has been detected and segmented from the remaining parts to make the searching area, in tracking stage, narrower and processing speed higher. Then eye area is determined and eye pupils are detected in the specified area. In the proposed method, to support tracking in eyes closure state, corner detection has been additionally used. Experimental results were considered on a variety of images with existence head and face rotation, make up and eyes closure show the ability of this method in human eye tracking.

Keywords: Eye Detection, Face Detection, Eye Tracking, Particle Filter, Corner Detection, Harris Algorithm
