  • Abstract

    This paper presents the implementation of watershed segmentation for facial tracking. It focuses on tracking face of human in a continuous video transfer. The database is obtained from internet resource. Tracking efficiency is 97.2%.

     Keywords: Facial Tracking, Watershed Segmentation, Motion Estimation.
