Tracking regions of human skin through illumination changes

Abstract

New human computer interfaces are using computer vision systems to track faces and hands. A critical task in such systems is the segmentation. An often used approach is colour based segmentation, approximating the skin chromaticities with a statistical model, e.g. with mean value and covariance matrix. The advantage of this approach is that it is invariant… (More)
