Abstract Abstract-An important topic in face recognition as well as in video coding or multi-modal human machine interfaces is the automatic localization of faces or head and- shoulder regions in visual scenes. The algorithms therefore should be computationally efficient and robust against distortions like varying lighting conditions. This paper describes a method for segmenting frontal head and shoulder views of persons from grey level images. The segmentation is done by oriented template correlation. This matching method only depends on edge information, especially the orientation of the edges. In the matching stage we calculate the possibility for a face at the current image position using this model. The detection capabilities of the presented algorithm are evaluated on a large database of 1004 images each containing one or more faces.
