The authors previously (1995) proposed an efficient method for tracking the eye movements. The proposed algorithm did not address the issue of compensating for head movements. Head movements are normally much slower than eye movements and can be compensated for using another tracking scheme for head position. In this paper, a hybrid method employing the two tracking schemes is developed. To this end, first a measurement model for the compensation of the head movement is formulated and then the overall tracking scheme is implemented by cascading two Kalman filters. The tracking of the iris movement is followed by the compensation of the head movement for each image frame. Experimental results are presented to demonstrate the accuracy aspects and the real-time applicability of the proposed approach
