Abstract

Face detection and tracking are important in video content analysis since the most important objects in most video are human beings. This paper proposes a new approach for combined face detection and tracking in video. The face detection algorithm is a fast template matching procedure using iterative dynamic programming (DP)[1]. Although the face detection algorithm is designed for frontal face, the same mechanism can also be applied to track non-frontal faces with online adapted face models. Due to the essence of template matching, the algorithm is capable of comparing the similarity among different faces, which makes it suitable for tracking the same face that occur at disjointed temporal locations in video. While the proposed face detection method provides comparable accuracy as the neural network based approach, it is much faster.
