Very interesting project and a nice poster. I am curious as to how your eye gaze detection would work if there are multiple persons present in the room.

Thank you for your comment! Due to the code limitation, gaze detection only supports searching for one face in the image captured. Hence we are planning to implement a possible solution to integrate sound source localization and face-tracking techniques into our system to locate where the user is.

The external servo together with the camera platform would then be mechanically turned to the user’s direction, leading the camera to spot the correct user. We decided to use this to solve the problems of where multiple users are in the same image. Despite the effectiveness of this methodology when the users are dispersed, it might still be inaccurate when the correct user is very close to other faces and so far we could not think of a way to solve so. We would appreciate it if you could give us any potential solutions or suggestions!
