International Journal of Intelligent Systems Technologies and Applications (IJISTA), Vol. 2, No. 2/3, 2007

Abstract: We present an improvement to the object detection scheme of Viola and Jones (2004), using the example of face detection. We present a new kind of visual features that is based on sampling individual pixels within the examined sub-window, instead of comparing the sums of pixel values in rectangular regions. Our features are faster and do not demand the preparation of an integral image, nor variance-normalisation of each sub-window. The result is an improved system that detects faces in quarter-PAL images in only 9 milliseconds per image on a 2.4-GHz pentium computer.
