A Joint System for Single-Person 2D-Face and 3D-Head Tracking in CHIL Seminars
We present the IBM systems submitted and evaluated within the CLEAR'06 evaluation campaign for the tasks of single person visual 3D tracking (localization) and 2D face tracking on CHIL seminar data. The two systems are significantly inter-connected to justify their presentation within a single paper as a joint vision system for single person 2D-face and 3D-head tracking, suitable for smart room environments with multiple synchronized, calibrated, stationary cameras. Indeed, in the developed system, face detection plays a pivotal role in 3D person tracking, being employed both in system initialization as well as in detecting possible tracking drift. Similarly, 3D person tracking determines the 2D frame regions where a face detector is subsequently applied. The joint system consists of a number of components that employ detection and tracking algorithms, some of which operate on input from all four corner cameras of the CHIL smart rooms, while others select and utilize two out of th...
