Face tracker using Good Features to Track and Optical Flow

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Announcement from Patrick Goebel of Pi Robot to ros-users

I have put together a little ROS package for doing face tracking using the idea described in the first paragraph below. Note that I have not yet added any feature learning as used in the TLD algorithm. Interested parties can check it out on the ROS wiki.

You can also use this package for tracking arbitrary patches of a video by setting the auto_face_tracking parameter to False and selecting the desired region with the mouse. This does not work as well as face tracking since face tracking uses the Haar detector to re-acquire the face if the number of tracked features falls below a prescribed minimum.

Let me know if you find any bugs or can think of improvements.
