This paper presents an integrated approach for tracking hands, faces and specific facial features (eyes, nose, and mouth) in image sequences. For hand and face tracking, we employ a state-of-the-art blob tracker which is specifically trained to track skin-colored regions. In this paper we extend the skin color tracker by proposing an incremental probabilistic classifier, which can be used to maintain and continuously update the belief about the class of each tracked blob, which can be left-hand… CONTINUE READING
