Paper Abstract

For tracking based autostereoscopic displays an eye position detection system is needed. We built a real-time image processing unit that not only achieves a high level of detection reliability but also is cost effective and can be integrated in a display housing. The device is able to autonomously find the eyes of the user and track them without the need of any markers or special lighting. The system consists of a stereo camera and proprietary DSP-based hardware and software. We describe determination of parameters of the optical system and correction of image distortion as well as algorithmic details. Performance results and future developments are discussed.
