I am working on eye blinking using opencv 2.4.3 in C on unbuntu platform. I was able to detect to face and eyes in live video using Haar cascades, but when I tilt my face, Algorithm cannot detect the face, and I have also read it on net that if face is tilt it cannot detect. So I think tracking can be helpful. Can anybody help me out, how should I track face and eyes in live video.

It is a relatively difficult topic, but look at chapter 7 of Mastering OpenCV with Practical Computer Vision Projects code here. The tracking of eye contours is performed. You can use it as a first stage of your tracking, and after use a Kalman filter doc or the condensation algorithm (aka particle filter) to perform the tracking (I don't find the documentation anymore, but the principles are describe in the book Learning OpenCV: Computer Vision with the OpenCV Library).
