His research activity is being carried out at IUSIANI.

 

CURRENT PROJECTS

 

 

·ENCARA2: A Real-Time Multiple Face and Facial Feature Detector for Perceptual Interfaces for Face Recognition and Description. (Facial feature xml cascades for OpenCV used in applications: Mug Shooter). Viola-Jones cascade training tutorial for OpenCV (in spanish).




 

 

Detection demo

Multi detection demo


The current system integrates the skin color based ENCARA detector
(ICIP03), the OpenCV implementation of Viola Jones face detector, and the local context based detector (PETS03).
Have a look to the whole video stream: a
demo with a single individual and large changes in pose and size (17MB, divx 5.1.1 needed), or another demo (3MB, divx 5.1.1 needed) with more people.

 

Would you like to test it? Ask me.
