Additions by me:
Minumum face size constraint
Adaptive theta thresholding (Theta is thresholded by mean2(theata)/4
Parameters are modified by to detect better. Please check the paper for parameters they propose.
Check the paper for more details.
The function will display the bounding box if a face is found.
Notes: This algorithm is very primitive and doesn't work in real life. The resaon why I implement is that I believe for low cost platforms people need such kind of algorithms. However this one doesn't perform so well in my opinion (if I implemented correctly)
