The goal of the Eye Loc application is to localize the eye centers of a person the camera is capturing, in real time. It is based on a computer vision algorithm that exploits the chrominance information of the eye and the radial symmetry of the iris in order to localize the eye centers. The algorithm makes use of OpenCV, an open source computer vision and machine learning software library. Face detection is performed using the OpenCV’s built-in face detector. The application works optimally in well-illuminated environments, where images with good contrast levels are captured.

The Eye Loc application is released to demonstrate the eye localization functionality in handheld devices. Its development was initiated as part of a project to develop a robust eye localization platform based on low cost hardware, with the ambition to integrate its functionality in other applications such
