Abstract: This paper describes the comparative analysis of different face tracking methods in the head gesture recognition system. The major constraints of head gesture recognition system, i.e. face detection, feature extraction, tracking, and recognition are explained. We used adaboost algorithm for detection, and Camshift algorithm for tracking with different feature extraction methods. We performed extensive experimentations and presented a comparative analysis of tracking performance of head gesture recognition system under cluttered backgrounds, shadow and sunshine conditions. Experimental results show the robustness in face detection, tracking and direction recognition of the proposed method.
