Saccadic model of eye movements for free-viewing condition

  title={Saccadic model of eye movements for free-viewing condition},
  author={Olivier Le Meur and Zhi Liu},
  journal={Vision Research},
In this paper, we propose a new framework to predict visual scanpaths of observers while they freely watch a visual scene. The visual fixations are inferred from bottom-up saliency and several oculomotor biases. Bottom-up saliency is represented by a saliency map whereas the oculomotor biases (saccade amplitudes and saccade orientations) are modeled using public eye tracking datasets. Our experiments show that the simulated scanpaths exhibit similar trends of human eye movements in a free… CONTINUE READING
