A visually demanding driving environment, where elements surrounding a driver are constantly and rapidly changing, requires a driver to make spatially large head turns. Many existing state of the art vision based head pose algorithms, however, still have difficulties in continuously monitoring the head dynamics of a driver. This occurs because, from the perspective of a single camera, spatially large head turns induce self-occlusions of facial features, which are key elements in determining… CONTINUE READING
