I require a C++ based command-line program that will accurately detect the position of facial features from various images. I will be running this program on Centos Linux so any libraries used must function in Centos.
The images will be of people's faces, looking towards the camera. The software must work with many different male and female faces, of different skin colours. The coordinates of facial features must be found in less than a second.
The software must accurately find the pixel coordinates of the edges facial features:
The coordinates must be within 5 pixels of the actual features.
I require full source code for this software.
My suggested way of completing this project would be using Active Appearance Model. Some examples of this are as follows:
