We propose a system for extracting eye gaze information, and develop a couple of new human interface media by eye gaze information. For example, the observer wants to know visually how effectively the partner is interesting to him or not even on the net environment. To do this it is usually expected to utilize motion images. But, the observer wants to know(More)
recognition such as eyes, a nose, a mouth, etc. This paper pays attention especially to eye (iris) recognition by Hough We have been developing the methods for facial parts "ansfom and new hierarchical method for face trackmg recognition such as eyes, a nose, a mouth, etc. This paper and recognition is proposed in order to realize a human pays especially to(More)
We took the face, especially eye or eye gaze, into consideration for discussing the non-verbal interface media. We first proposed a passive eye-camera system based on the facial image processing such as Hough transform for iris recognition. Next we proposed a method for generating eye-contacted facial images by computer image processing for enforcing and(More)
In this paper, we propose an effective measure to compute rareness' of pixel blocks compared with other blocks and also introduce a region segmentation method to extract significant blocks such as defects in visual inspection system. Our basic idea is based on the simple and realistic assumption that the target blocks should be detected must have different(More)
Facial caricature as a facial image media acts as an interface between the user and the computer. We developed the facial caricaturing robot “COOPER” (Fig. 1) that was exhibited at the Prototype Robot Exhibition of EXPO 2005 [1]. COOPER watches the face of a person seated at the chair, obtains facial images, and analyzes the images to extract 251 feature(More)
Many image morphing methods require feature points meaning correspondence points between the input images by the hand. If user does not add feature points in detail, a noise called “ghost” appears in the output image. We propose a ghost removal method which extracts detailed feature points to modify a texture correspondence. The proposed(More)
