Human activity recognition (HAR) is an important research area due to its potential for building context-aware interactive systems. Though movement-based activity recognition is an established area of research, recognising sedentary activities remains an open research question. Previous works have explored eye-based activity recognition as a potential approach for this challenge, focusing on statistical measures derived from eye movement properties---low-level gaze features---or some knowledge of the Areas-of-Interest (AOI) of the stimulus---high-level gaze features. In this paper, we extend this body of work by employing the addition of mid-level gaze features; features that add a level of ..
