Eye Tracking as a Method of Controlling Applications on Mobile Devices

Angelika Kwiatkowska, Dariusz Sawicki

Abstract

The possibility of using eye tracking in multimodal interaction is discussed. Nowadays, communication by eye movements can be both natural and intuitive. The main goal of the present work was to develop a method which allows for controlling a smartphone application by using eye movements. The designed software was based on the Open Source Computer Vision Library (OpenCV) and dedicated for Android system. We conducted two sets of tests: usability tests of the new solution, and tests on how the methods of template matching affect the operation of the device. The results, obtained by testing a small group of people, showed that the application meets all stated expectations.
