Development Of A Robust Face Tracking Algorithm Using OpenCV Python

An individual project for AINT 513. Used Haar Cascades to localize the face followed by corner detection (Shi-Tomasi corners) which were tracked in real time using LK Optic flow. This allowed the face to be tracked robustly in real-time. Various minor tweaks were made to account for practical problems such as lighting and tilted/ far away faces.
