Simulating binocular eye movements based on 3-D short-term memory image in reading

  • Satoru Morita


We simulate binocular eye movements in reading. We introduce the 3-D edge features reconstructed from the binocular foveated vision to determine the next fixation point in reading. The next fixation point is determined statistically from the feature points in the 3-D short-term memory edge image. We show the effectiveness of simulating eyes movement based on 3-D short-term memory image to realize humanlike robots.
