Face recognition in general surveillance situations requires high resolution face images to be captured from remote active cameras. Since frontal face views are required, we propose a system which optimises the capturing of such images by using coarse gaze estimates from a static camera. By considering the potential information gain from observing each target, our system automatically switches cameras to observe different tracked targets to maximise the likelihood of correct identification. The approach is validated using a combination of simulated situations and real tracking output to demonstrate superior performance over alternative approaches.
