opengaze: the high-level class to call other functions, including three common use examples (see below).
input_handler: a basic utility module handling the input types and data.
gaze_estimator: a module to perform the gaze estimation pipeline, including face detection, head pose estimation, data normalization and predict gaze from the input face/eye image patch.
face_detector: a face detection module with the third-party library to perform both face and facial landmark detection.
normalizer: the data normalization module is used to extract the face/eye image patch from the input image according to 3D head pose and target center. It can compensate part of variation caused by head poses.
gaze_predictor: the core module for gaze estimation. It takes an input eye/face patch and outputs the 3D gaze direction in the (normalized) camera coordinate system.
data: a module that defines the stored data structure across different modules.
personal_calibrator: a module to allow the user to calibrate the gaze estimation results on the 2D screen plane.
You can familiarize yourself with the API by exploring the main executable class OpenGaze with files opengaze.hpp and opengaze.cpp.
You will find three examples we wrote to demonstrate how to use OpenGaze for gaze visualization, gaze estimation, and personal calibration in the "exe" directory.
The main function to call for this example is OpenGaze::runGazeEstimation(). After initializing the input by the InputHandler class, a gaze estimation task can be simply run as:
Mat input_image = input_handler_.getNextSample(); Mat undist_img; undistort(input_image, undist_img, input_handler_.camera_matrix_, input_handler_.camera_distortion_); gaze_estimator_.estimateGaze(undist_img, output);
The 3D gaze direction vector will be stored in output[i].gaze_data.gaze3d where i indicates the ith user inthe scene.
The main function to call for this example is OpenGaze::runGazeOnScreen().
You still need to estimate a 3D gaze vector first, and then simply run: input_handler_.projectToDisplay(output, true);
to calculate the intersection of the gaze vector and screen plane. This will give you the estimated 2D location on the screen stored in output[i].gaze_data.gaze2d.
Note that before this calculation, you have to provide correct calibration information. this calibration information is:
calibration.yml - located in OpenGaze/content/calib/ directory, and stores the camera intrinsic parameters. These parameters can be set with the standard camera calibration procedure provided by OpenCV.
The main function to call for this example is OpenGaze::runPersonalCalibration(int num_calibration_point).
The main class PersonalCalibrator can be initialized by: PersonalCalibrator m_calibrator(input_handler_.getScreenWidth(), input_handler_.getScreenHeight());
It needs to know the screen size in pixels in order to show the corresponding stimuli on the screen.
The locations of stimuli are generated randomly by specifying the number of stimulis: m_calibrator.generatePoints(num_calibration_point);
Then each stimulus can be shown by calling: m_calibrator.showNextPoint()
For each stimulus point, the gaze estimation module estimates the coresponding gaze point on the screen. The stimuli locations and estimated gaze points can be used to generate a personal model by: m_calibrator.generateModel(prediction, ground-truth, 1),
where the last parameter indicates the order of the mapping function.
