1 Introduction
In recent years, research efforts seeking to provide more natural, human-centered
means of interacting with computers have gained growing interest. A particu-
larly important direction is that of perceptive user interfaces, where the com-
puter is endowed with perceptive capabilities that allow it to acquire both im-
plicit and explicit information about the user and the environment. Vision has
the potential of carrying a wealth of information in a non-intrusive manner and
at a low cost, therefore it constitutes a very attractive sensing modality for
developing perceptive user interfaces. Proposed approaches for vision-driven
interactive user interfaces resort to technologies such as head tracking, face and
facial expression recognition, eye tracking and gesture recognition.
