Spatiotemporal Fusion Framework for Multi-camera Face Orientation Analysis
In this paper, we propose a collaborative technique for face orientation estimation in smart camera networks. The proposed spatiotemporal feature fusion analysis is based on active collaboration between the cameras in data fusion and decision making using features extracted by each camera. First, a head strip mapping method is proposed based on a Markov model and a Viterbi-like algorithm to estimate the relative angular differences to the face between the cameras. Then, given synchronized face sequences from several camera nodes, the proposed technique determines the orientation and the angular motion of the face using two features, namely the hair-face ratio and the head optical flow. These features yield an estimate of the face orientation and the angular velocity through simple analysis such as Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) and Least Squares (LS), respectively. Spatiotemporal feature fusion is implemented via key frame detection in each camera, a forward-backward probabilistic ...
