latest haarcascade for face detection

asked 2013-03-19 09:20:07 -0600

Hey guys, I'm currently looking for the newest/most updated haarcascade for (mid) face detection! I've been using one from 2009:

it draws rectangles around the face etc. but it's not smooth enough and the rectangle basically jumps up and down etc. even when my face is standing still!

I want one to do a smooth detection so that when i overlay a 3d object on my face it doesnt jump around a few centimeters on the x and y achsis even when i'm standing still...hope you get what i mean.

help would be really appreciated

I admit it was hard to find by a simple search, but there is a topic where I actually answered what is happening. Go check out the link and read the solution there. No need to create a new discussion :)

Thanks. Would you code that what you have suggested for me for a bit of money cause I'm a newbie and I need it for my university stuff (project - its kinda urgent) ;)

Seriously?! You just have to average over frames and look for a fixed bounding box versus a center point that you middled out. First of all it's just stupid that you even consider the fact that I will code your university project, not even for money. Secondly, if you cannot code simple things like that, no way did you put any effort in implementing the above face detection without simple copy pasting. Im at a university myself, and this is the main reason why certain people don't succeed ... @sammy :) this is exactly what i meant :) Are there any rulez against this?

@StevenPuttemans completely agree this is a stupid idea, but the question itself does not contain any strange requests, so I would leave it there. @Mendoza This is a question & answer forum, not a programmer-for-hire place. You can try, but Steve is right - if you are not able or willing to write this simple app, then why bother about university at all? Just go get a job:
