Face tracking in low resolution videos under illumination variations
In practical face tracking applications, the face region is often small and affected by illumination variations. We address this problem by using a new feature, namely the Gradient-Logarithmic Field (GLF) feature, in the particle filter framework. The GLF feature is robust under illumination variations and the GLF-based tracker does not assume any model for the face being tracked and is effective in low-resolution video. Experimental results show that the proposed GFL-based tracker works well under significant illumination changes and outperforms some of the state-of-the-art algorithms. © 2011 IEEE.
