Abstract or Description

Abstract: "The non-rigid motion of a driver's head (i.e. the motion of their mouth, eye-brows, cheeks, etc) can tell us a lot about their mental state; e.g. whether they are drowsy, alert, aggressive, comfortable, tense, distracted, etc. In this paper, we describe our recent research on non-rigid face tracking. In particular, we present both 2D and 3D algorithms for tracking the non-rigid motion of the driver's head using an Active Appearance Model. Both algorithms operate at over 200 frames per second. We also present algorithms for converting a 2D model into a 3D model and for fitting with occlusion and large pose variation."
