Abstract

We propose a method of recording experience by videos captured with coworker's head-mounted camera and detecting useful scene automatically from the videos based on the relation of their eye direction change. When members are interested in an experience, they move naturally to an appropriate position in which they can look an interesting object well. As a result, each member's head-mounted camera can acquire effective videos to the record of the experience. Moreover, members who share an experience have the following character concerning the change of eye direction. All members pay attention to a specific object at the same time. Or, there is a typical pattern to change the eye direction according to experience person's role. Experimental results show that the proposed method can capture videos of various angles and shot size. In addition, it can detect useful scenes in the videos by using the relation of coworker's eye direction movement.
