Abstract: This paper describes the development of a simple, video-based system capable of efficiently detecting human skin in images captured with an omni-directional video sensor. The video sensor is used to provide a view of the entire visual hemisphere thereby providing multiple dynamic views of a scene. Color models of both skin and non-skin were constructed with images obtained with the omni-directional video sensor. Using a stochastic weak estimator coupled with a linear classifier, the system is capable of distinguishing omni-directional images that contain human skin from those that do not. Results indicate that the system is able to accomplish this task in a simple and computationally efficient manner. The ability to obtain an image of the entire scene from a single viewpoint using the omni-directional video sensor and determine whether the image contains human skin (e.g., one or more humans) in a simple and efficient manner is practical as a precursor for a number of applications incl uding teleconferencing, remote learning, and video surveillance, the application of interest in this work.
