PupilNet: Measuring Task Evoked Pupillary Response using Commodity RGB Tablet Cameras

Pupillary diameter monitoring has been proven successful at the objectively measuring cognitive load that might otherwise be unobservable. This paper compares three different algorithms for measuring cognitive load using commodity cameras. We compare the performance of modified starburst algorithm (from previous work) and propose two new algorithms: 2 Level Snakuscules and a convolutional neural network […]

PupilWare: Towards Pervasive Cognitive Load Measurement using Commodity Devices (PETRA Conference 2015)

Abstract Cognitive load refers to the amount of effort required by an indi- vidual to process information. Dating back more than fifty years, the cognitive psychology community has conducted experiments showing that the cognitive load experienced by an individual can be measured using sub-millimeter fluctuations in their pupil size, assessed using medical grade infrared devices […]

Real-Time Emotion Recognition

Abstract This paper discusses facial expression recognition based on the Eigen faces method and using depth data from a ToF (Time-of-flight camera) camera in order to resist varying lighting conditions in real-time applications and computer games. For each frame, the system extracts a matrix transformation for a bitmap image, and applying the same matrix to […]
