Paper Abstract

This paper presents s new scheme for face localization in a complex background. A Difference Offset of Gaussian filter is first introduced to calculate a feature inertia surface of an image. Then skeletonization on the inertia surface is carried out by a combination of fast construction of Euclidean Distance Maps and morphological operations. After that, face regions in this resulting skeleton image are detected by a quadratic Gabor filter, and its face trueness of each located area is verified by a modified retinal model. Experiments in practical applications have shown its feasibility.
