This work outlines a system in which a stereo camera may effectively track a user's face and hands in three dimensions. Given this information, a method for controlling objects in three dimensions is also described. The system begins by finding faces. If more than one face is found in the image, the algorithm uses depth information to isolate the face that is closest to the camera. The algorithm then gathers information about the user's skin tone by examining the content of the face found… CONTINUE READING
