Title:

    Beyond foveal rendering: smart eye-tracking enabled networking (SEEN)

Presenter(s):



Abstract:


    Smart Eye-tracking Enabled Networking (SEEN) is a novel end-to-end framework using real-time eye-gaze information beyond state-of-the-art solutions. Our approach can effectively combine the computational savings of foveal rendering with the bandwidth savings required to enable future mobile VR content provision.
