  • The Visual Focus of Attention (what or whom a person is looking at) or VFOA is a fundamental cue in non-verbal communication and plays an important role when designing effective human-machine interaction systems. However, recognizing the VFOA of an interacting person is difficult for a robot, since due to low resolution imaging, eye gaze estimation is not possible. Rather, head pose cue is used as a substitute for gaze, but leads to ambiguities in its interpretation as VFOA indicator. In this… CONTINUE READING
