A CORRECTIVE FRAMEWORK FOR FACIAL FEATURE DETECTION AND TRACKING

Epidemiological studies indicate that automobile drivers from varying demographics are confronted by difficult driving contexts such as negotiating intersections, yielding, merging and overtaking. We aim to detect and track the face and eyes of the driver during several driving scenarios, allowing for further processing of a driver's visual search pattern behavior. Traditionally, detection and tracking of objects in visual media has been performed using specific techniques. These techniques

The idea of an integrated framework employing multiple trackers is advantageous in forming a globally strong tracking methodology. In order to model the effectiveness of trackers, a confidence parameter is introduced to help minimize the errors produced by incorrect matches and allow more effective trackers with a higher confidence value to correct the perceived position of the target.
