Feature Extraction with Computational Intelligence for Head Pose Estimation

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Measuring social signals has often proved challenging as they are often characterized by subtle movements which are difficult to detect. Head pose is one such social signal used to indicate where an individual’s attention is focused. This paper will discuss the problem of head pose estimation by defining the problem in terms of two fields of view, pan and tilt. A novel approach for head pose estimation is described that uses histogram of oriented gradients with support vector machines. The approach is compared with a template matching approach, among others, using a well-known dataset. The results show that the histogram of oriented gradients approach is the most accurate, able to determine head pan to within one class approximately 79% of the time, and head tilt to within one class approximately 82% of the time.
