Fast multi-view face tracking with pose estimation
In this paper, a fast and an effective multi-view face tracking algorithm with head pose estimation is introduced. For modeling the face pose we employ a tree of boosted classiﬁers built using either Haar-like ﬁlters or Gauss ﬁlters. A ﬁrst classiﬁer extracts faces of any pose from the background. Then more speciﬁc classiﬁers discriminate between different poses. The tree of classiﬁers is trained by hierarchically sub-sampling the pose space. Finally, Condensation algorithm is used for tracking the faces. Experiments show large improvements in terms of detection rate and processing speed compared to state-of-the-art algorithms.
