Abstract

In this paper, we propose the face detection method for tracking a human by a mobile-robot. We obtain images from a web camera, and detect faces by focusing on skin colors and eyes as facial features. If we detect faces from images, we trace the detected human, take a picture of him/her, and print it automatically by using the mobile-robot. In order to show the effectiveness of the proposed method, we show the experimental results. Firstly, in the face detection, we show the face detection accuracy. Then, in the human tracking with mobile-robot by using face detection, we show the tracking performance.
