Head Tracking System - Our Main Project

Head Tracking using WebCam

As part of our academic project we are trying to do Head Tracking System using Web Cam. Today we presented this idea in front of our sir and he approved the topic and says go ahead. This is a very interesting topic and we take it as a challenging project. it is very hard to achieve this in a short period of our project. But hopefully we moving with this topic.

The aim of this work is the development of a novel method for 3D head tracking in the presence of head rotations changes. Tracking is formulated in terms of color image registration in the texture map of a 3D surface model. Model appearance is recursively updated via image mosaicking in the texture map as the head orientation varies. The resulting dynamic texture map provides a stabilized view of the face that can be used as input to many existing 2D techniques for face recognition & eye tracking.

To get a brief idea about the technique see this video.

When combined with the proper game concept, this type of technology could provide for some really unique experiences, including the ability to interact with environments just by looking around. Amazingly enough, it’s all feasible with a single, standard webcam, and no special hardware is required. It has so many applications in the world. So we are thinking about a particular application where it can efficiently launched. If you find any real time application for this which are not exists now, please share it with us.
