Face tracking

In this application the camera system is equiped by face detection algorythm. It processes the image and in case of a detected face regarding the distance between the face and the center of image new mirror position is calculated . The demanded position is than sent to the mechanism control system, which rotates the mirror so that the face gets to the image center. In the next step a new face position is calculated and new mirror position is determined from its offset from the center. In order to track the detected face the procedure is repeated as long as the face is detected.

The face detection programme is based on recognition algorythm Adaboost, which has been automaticly trained on various face images. The detector was developed by team from Center for Machine Perception and Department of Cybernetics at Faculty of Electrical Engineering, CTU in Prague within other projects.
