Face Detection in Skin-Toned Images Through Wavelet Edges and Neural Network

H. C. Vijay Lakshmi and Sudarshan PatilKulkarni

Abstract—In this paper, an improved algorithm to detect faces in images with skin tone regions is proposed. Among the segmented candidate regions, facial edges detected using Canny and Sobel operators on wavelet approximation are suggested as feature set. These features are further classified using a neural-net proposed. Results of the test using the proposed algorithm are compared with those of the previous ones.

Index Terms—Face detection, localization, edge, segment, approximation.
