|1. (WO2017195405) IMAGE PROCESSING APPARATUS, IMAGE PROCESSING METHOD, AND MOBILE BODY|
|Title:||IMAGE PROCESSING APPARATUS, IMAGE PROCESSING METHOD, AND MOBILE BODY|
Provided are an image processing apparatus and an image processing method that acquire the consciousness level indicating a driver's ability to recognize the surrounding environment on the basis of an image of the driver captured by an on-vehicle camera. An image of a wide eyellipse is captured at a low resolution by an on-vehicle camera 100, and eyeball positions recognized through analysis of the image are corrected for each frame. For the eyeball positions, local high-speed processes are carried out concurrently, and thus tracking of the saccadic motion of eye movement is realized. In other words, through implementation of active local high-speed eyeball tracking in a limited part of a capturing frame 102 of the image captured by the on-vehicle camera 100, monitoring of the saccadic motion of eye movement is realized without causing an attachment load.
