Automatic Face Region Tracking for Highly Accurate Face Recognition in Unconstrained Environments
In this paper, we present a combined real-time face region tracking and highly accurate face recognition technique for an intelligent surveillance system. Highresolution face images are very important to achieve an accurate identification of a human face. Conventional surveillance or security systems, however, usually provide poor image quality because they use only fixed cameras to passively record scenes. We implemented a real-time surveillance system that tracks a moving face using four pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras. While tracking, the regionof-interest (ROI) can be obtained by using a low-pass filter and background subtraction with the PTZ. Color information in the ROI is updated to extract features for optimal tracking and zooming. FaceItĀ®, which is one of the most popular face recognition software packages, is evaluated and then used to recognize the faces from the video signal. Experimentation with real human faces showed highly acceptable results in the sense of both accuracy ...
