Please help me with HEAD cascades

asked 2017-08-16 02:36:46 -0500

I need to find the entire head, not just the face. I found one cascade for head + shoulders, doesn't work too well..

Either, use an existing model and just expand the detection field OR train a complete new model :) Only two possible ways to solve this.

that's no wonder. face detection works nicely IF you can restrict pose & lighting, and only use a small area with well known features. once you reach the clothes-covered parts of the body, it's all over.

i do not think, yoour idea is feasible at all.

Actually it is feasible. We trained both upper body ACF and DPM models, but you will need more than the simple boosted cascades of OpenCV :D
