A human face provides a variety of di erent communicative functions. In this paper, we present approaches for real-time face/facial feature tracking and their applications. First, we present techniques of tracking human faces. It is revealed that human skincolor can be used as a major feature for tracking human faces. An adaptive stochastic model has been developed to characterize the skin-color distributions. Based on the maximum likelihood method, the model parameters can be adapted for di… CONTINUE READING
