We contribute a novel gaze estimation technique, which is adaptable for person-independent applications. In a study with 17 participants, using a standard webcam, we recorded the subjects' left eye images for different gaze locations. From these images, we extracted five types of basic visual features. We then sub-selected a set of features with minimum Redundancy Maximum Relevance (mRMR) for the input of a 2-layer regression neural network for estimating the subjects' gaze. We investigated the effect of different visual features on the accuracy of gaze estimation. Using machine learning techniques, by combing different features, we achieved average gaze estimation error of 3.44° horizontally and 1.37° vertically for person-dependent.
