face detection by C++

from flash’s programming background, we think face detection done by C++ is an intensive one,
its response is quick and it can detect multiple faces at an instance.
it is our first follow-up post to our earlier post on openKinect – face detection as a plugin tool to xBox kinect sensor’s application for interactive installation.

we’ve made use of haar finder as the face detection library, and we found that

  • showing eyebrow is advantageous
  • facing right towards the camera gives a much better result
  • z and y-axis rotation of the head is bad
  • clean image (with less noises) works better but with kinect’s preset range of detection, it is not a big problem.
  • less make up is better (huge eyes etc)
