Ok thanks, just checking that it wasn't there already. Will work on getting it sorted.

Hi A follow up question, does OpenCV already have built into the framework a variable that tracks the time the face was detected? So it detects a face at 1:05:05 and then doesn't detect the same face at 1:05:20 which would mean it duration of detection was 20 seconds?

Is there a variable built into the face detection module already?

Thanks will look into this!

Just started using the opencv 2.4.4 got the face tracking and detection to work fine along with the eye (with glasses detection). This is using the samples provided.

My next question is how do I track the amount of time the face is being detected along with the eyes?

Basically what I need to do is start a timer when they eyes are detected and when they are no longer detected calculate the timespan between the 2 instances?

Is there any sample code that does this so I can have a look how it's done?

I saw that, but it's taking a bunch of images and saying whether they are female or male, I want to be able to use the webcam and the face detected in the video stream and be able to say whether or not that face is male or female.

As I said I am very new to all of this, so if I am missing something obvious I apologise.

That doesn't fill me with a lot of confidence as I need to have this done by Friday. Can I not take the sample code and tuts which come with opencv 2.4.4 and engineer a solution from there? Combining the 2 samples?

2013-02-27 07:59:48 -0600 asked a question Facial detection and Gender Classification


I am really new to c++ and opencv. I got the facial detection and tracking working over the weekend with the sample code provided in the documentation. I am using the 2.4.4 beta and vs2010.

What I want to do now is add gender classification to the facial tracking program. What I want to know is do I have to take a pic first and then parse it through the facial recognition or can the facial recognition do it straight from the video being streamed in real time?

If so how would I do this and can someone point me at some sample code to go through please.
