This is a simple system for detecting and tracking multiple faces from live video. It uses the Computer Vision System Toolbox and the Webcam Support Package. The system detects faces using the Viola-Jones algorithm, detects min-eigen corners within each face's bounding box, and tracks the corners using the Kanade-Lucas-Tomasi (KLT) algorithm. It re-detects the faces every 10 frames in order to correct the tracker and replenish the points.
