A primary goal of this research is to develop tracking models (observers) for moving objects based on the model of human binocular vision. First, a simplified physical model of a single eye was built, and it was used to derive the mathematic model of the eye. Then computer simulations were performed to find a suitable controller for this model. Second, the model was extended to binocular vision and the controller found was improved for the binocular model.
