I need to develop a facial features detection application by which I could be able to detect eyes,nose,lips,head along with its face. For this I opted for OpenCV. I had gone through many tutorials and also sample projects. There I could see the usage of haarcascade files through which I could detect the facial features while recording a video. As I know the location of haar cascade file.

But no site could tell me the complete implementation of haarcascade files in OpenCV android project.

Kindly provide me some sites regarding or give me some brief knowledge regarding the same.

This example shows you the CascadeClassifier class to detect objects in a video stream. Facial features detection using cascadeclassifiers

But I prefer using more robust methods to locate facial features. For example:

  • You can use this paper to locate the position of the eyes. Bolme, D.S. "Average of Synthetic Exact Filters", IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition, 2009. CVPR 2009. PDF - Source Code
  • You can also use a facial landmark detector. It will return you the four corner points of the eyes, corner of mouth, center of nose, and center of face. It does however require you to give it a bounding box of the face. Project page - PDF - Source Code
