Abstract. -- A technique for the acquisition of an increased number of pupil positions, using a combined sensor consisting of a low-rate camera and a high-rate optical sensor, is presented in this paper. The additional data are provided by the optical movement-detection sensor mounted in close proximity to the eyeball. This proposed solution enables a significant increase in the number of registered fixation points and saccades and can be used in wearable electronics applications where low consumption of resources is required. The results of the experiments conducted here show that the proposed sensor system gives comparable results to those acquired from a high-speed camera and can also be used in the reduction of artefacts in the output signal.
