Face detection and tracking has been an important and active research field because it offers many applications, especially in video surveillance, biometrics, or video coding.
The goal of this project was to implement a real-time system using matlab and webcam d to detect and track a human?s face.
The face detection algorithm involved color-based skin segmentation and image filtering. The face location was determined by calculating the centroid of the detected region.
A software version of the algorithm was independently implemented and tested on still pictures in MATLAB
