Detect faces with facemask (COVID) [closed]

asked 2020-09-09 11:01:37 -0500

Hi. I'm actually detext faces using "haarcascade_frontalface_default.xml" and "haarcascade_eye.xml" Now, I need detext faces or eyes when a person has a facemask for COVID protection. I'm working with C# or VB.NET. How can I generate an XML for detext this?

Thanks in advance.

i think you need a more modern method like https://www.pyimagesearch.com/2020/05...

you're bad at logic, it seems ;(

cascade classifiers are binary, you can train a detector for faces(or NO face), or one for "faces with masks" (or NO face), but you cannot train one that detects faces AND distinguishes between mask or no-mask at the same time.

you will need a multi-class detector for this, maybe a cnn like SSD or YOLO

anyway you need some serious own research on this, not "asking around"

we also cannot help you with vb.net at all, let me close this question.
