Ear detection from a profile face image is an important step in many applications including biometric recognition. But accurate and rapid detection of the ear for real-time applications is a challenging task, particularly in the presence of occlusions. In this work, a cascaded AdaBoost based ear detection approach is proposed. In an experiment with a test set of 203 profile face images, all the ears were accurately detected by the proposed detector with a very low (5 x 10-6) false positive rate… CONTINUE READING
