ABSTRACT
Real-time face alignment in video is very critical in many
applications such as facial expression analysis, driver fatigue
monitoring, etc. This paper presents a real time algorithm for
face alignment in video that combines Active Shape Model
(ASM) based face alignment and spatial-temporal continuity
based tracking strategy. To guarantee the correctness of the
tracked shape in each frame, a verification procedure is in-
troduced so that when inter-frame shape tracking failed the
intra-frame ASM algorithm can be restored to initialize a
new shape for tracking. Experiments show that the imple-
mented system can run totally automatic with a quite good
accuracy that may have many practical applications.
