Comparison of Skin Colour Detection Techniques for Face Recognition
Skin tone classification is a critical subset of this field and is useful when it is necessary to extract parts of an image that could possibly contain parts of a person. This paper aims to compare the efficiency of different colour spaces (RGB, HSV, YCbCr) and compare them to see which one is the best for human skin detection. Skin colour has proven to be a useful and robust cue for face detection, localization and tracking. Image content filtering, content aware video compression and image colour balancing applications can also benefit from automatic detection of skin in images.
