Submitted by Jagan J Karthikeyan M 40103104029 40103104031

Under the guidance of Mr.M.V.PRABHAKARAN B.E., Lecturer, Dept. of CSE.

OBJECTIVE
• To locate face ROI by locating the eyes. • To determine the nose tip. • To finally determine nose bridge in the presence of geometric changes.

EXISTING SYSTEM
• Nostril tracking. • Nose tip detection. • Template search.

PROPOSED SYSTEM
• No template search needed. • System works for change in facial orientation. • Utilizes relative intensity information.

FACE ROI
• ROI is rectangular region with specific width and height whose values are obtained from Between-the-eyes. • Face ROI consists of three steps.

Steps in Face ROI
• Detection of eyes. • Finding “Between-the-eyes”. • Calculating ROI.

Detection of eyes
• Detection by face geometry. • Bright-dark relations are tested. • Identifying position of eyes in image.

SSR Filter
• Six Segmented Rectangular Filter. • Scans portions of input image, dividing into rectangles. • Subdivided into six segments.

Between-the-eyes
• Calculating the cumulative sum of the pixel values. • Calculate Between-the-eye based on the face geometry and cumulative sum of pixel values.

NOSE BRIDGE
• Three segmented Convolution filter is used to trace the nose bridge. • Divides into three segments that traces maximum intensity profile. • Traces only the Face ROI of the image.
