EyePhone: Activating Mobile Phones With Your Eyes

Free registration required

Executive Summary

As smartphones evolve researchers are studying new techniques to ease the human-mobile interaction. The authors propose EyePhone, a novel "Hand-free" interfacing system capable of driving mobile applications/functions using only the user's eyes movement and actions (e.g., wink). EyePhone tracks the user's eye movement across the phone's display using the camera mounted on the front of the phone; more specifically, machine learning algorithms are used to: track the eye and infer its position on the mobile phone display as a user views a particular application; and detect eye blinks that emulate mouse clicks to activate the target application under view.
