This paper proposes a close face-distance warning system in order to keep personal computer (PC) user away from to the PC display and to prevent straightened neck during prolong PC usage. The system estimates the distance between the display and the user face (called as face distance) from the user face area that is real-timely measured from captured image with built-in webcam. Haar-like cascade classifier is used for the face detection and tracking from captured image every frame. The face… 

An Eye Blink and Head Movement Detection for Computer Vision Syndrome

The proposed system develops a prototype using blink as a solution to prevent CVS, and concludes that the proposed algorithm yields 99.95% accuracy.

Activity monitoring system in supine position for preventing unhealthy smartphone reading posture

The validated result in this research show that by using accelerometer Z axis and captured image parameters only, it can be detected whether the user position is supine or not and the neck angle can be detect to inform users whether their posture are good or not while using smartphone.

A machine learning approach for visual object detection which is capable of processing images extremely rapidly and achieving high detection rates and the introduction of a new image representation called the "integral image" which allows the features used by the detector to be computed very quickly.

An extended set of Haar-like features for rapid object detection

This paper introduces a novel set of rotated Haar-like features that significantly enrich the simple features of Viola et al. scheme based on a boosted cascade of simple feature classifiers.

Skin segmentation using color pixel classification: analysis and comparison

This work finds that color quantization can be as low as 64 bins per channel, although higher histogram sizes give better segmentation performance, and that the Bayesian classifier with the histogram technique and the multilayer perceptron classifier are found to perform better compared to other tested classifiers.

Using Real-Time Stereo Vision for Mobile Robot Navigation

A method for reducing stereo vision disparity images to two-dimensional map information is presented to reduce errors by segmenting disparity images based on continuous disparity surfaces to reject “spikes” caused by stereo mismatches.

An Iterative Image Registration Technique with an Application to Stereo Vision

This work presents a new image registration technique that makes use of the spatial intensity gradient of the images to find a good match using a type of Newton-Raphson iteration, and can be generalized to handle rotation, scaling and shearing.
