Summary: Difficulties faced in the ELEC301 Viola-Jones-based facial detection and feature recognition project. This module is part of a collection.

Some of the difficulties we face heading in to this project deal mainly with the picture quality. If a person is covered by shadow or if lighting is uneven, the algorithm won’t work properly since it uses differences in light to detect a face. Additionally, if a person’s face is tilted or if part of their face is obstructed by an object detection will not take place. Movement such as turning or blinking is also an issue.

Definition of a lens


A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
