Eye Localization in a Full Frontal Still Image-eng

Abstract

Abstract In this paper the detection of human face and eye in still frontal color images is discussed. Firstly; the preprocessing required step is accomplished. It includes image resize, RGB to gray-scale conversion, image binarization, noise removing and small objects removing. Then a proposed algorithm is applied for face localization by detecting the face edges using the detection of the pixel color change in the binary image. Finally, the normalized cross correlation is applied to find the accurate position of eyes within the localized area of the face.Keywords: Eye detection, Face detection, Face recognition, Image processing, Pattern recognition.
