In this paper, weproposea methodfor detectionandtracking of facesin videosequencesin real time. It can be applied to a wide range of face scales. Our basic strategy for detectionis fast extraction of face candidateswith a Six-SegmentedRectangular(SSR)filter and face verification by a supportvectormachine. A motioncueis usedin a simpleway to avoid picking up false candidatesin the background. In facetracking, thepatternsof between-theeyesare trackedwith updatingtemplatematching. To cope with… CONTINUE READING
