Abstract: Skin detection has application in people retrieval, face detection/tracking, hand detection/tracking and more recently on face recognition. However, most of the currently available methods are not robust enough for dealing with some real-world conditions, such as illumination variation and background noises. This paper describes a novel technique for skin detection that is capable of achieving high performance in complex environments with real-world conditions. Three main contributions of our work are: (i) processing each pixel in different brightness levels for handling the problem of illumination variation, (ii) proposing a fast and simple method for incorporating the neighborhood information in processing each pixel, and (iii) presenting a comparative study on thresholding the skin likelihood map, and employing a local entropy technique for binarizing our skin likelihood map. Experiments on a set of real-world images and the comparison with some state-of-the-art methods validate th e robustness of our method. (More)
