  • Advanced hardware real time face detector 

    Bigioi, Petronel; Zaharia, Corneliu; Corcoran, Peter (IEEE, 2012)
    Face detection and tracking can be considered an enabling technology for a range of image enhancements technologies, authentications and advanced UIs in handheld devices. Several modes of implementing a face detection ...
  • Automatic indexing of consumer image collections using person recognition techniques 

    Corcoran, Peter; Costache, Gabriel (IEEE, 2005-01-08)
    An evaluation of person recognition technologies for use in an automatic cataloging tool for consumer image collections is presented. Prototype implementations of the automatic cataloging tool and user search tools are ...
  • Biometrics and Consumer Electronics: A Brave New World or the Road to Dystopia?[Soapbox] 

    Corcoran, Peter M. (IEEE, 2013-04)
    Biometric systems confirm a person's identity by extracting and comparing patterns in their physical characteristics against computer records of those patterns. Examples include scans of the face, iris, or retina; measurements ...
  • Enhanced real-time face models from stereo imaging for gaming applications 

    Ionita, Mircea C.; Andorko, Istvan; Corcoran, Peter (IEEE, 2009-10-23)
    Techniques for improved 2D active appearance face models are presented. When these are applied to stereoscopic image pairs we show that sufficient information on image depth is obtained to generate an approximate 3D face ...
  • Facial enhancement and beautification for HD video cameras 

    Corcoran, Peter (IEEE, 2011)
    Influenced by the widespread adoption of HDTV consumer imaging devices have begun to feature full HD (high density) video capture. With this high-resolution capability, small imperfections in human faces are captured with ...
  • FPGA based stereo imaging system with applications in computer gaming 

    Andorko, Istvan; Corcoran, Peter (IEEE, 2009-10-23)
    A real-time stereo imaging system is described. It incorporates dual image acquisition chains on a single FPGA device and is able to provide real-time synchronized video output from twin CMOS imaging sensors. The platform ...
  • Half-face detector for enhanced performance of flash-eye filter 

    Corcoran, Peter; Bigioi, Petronel (IEEE, 2013-01-12)
    Red-eye and flash-eye defects in still photography continue to cause problems for digital imaging devices. New variants of flash-eye defects have appeared as cameras and cameras sub-systems get smaller in size. This paper ...
  • Next Generation Face Tracking Technology Using AAM Techniques 

    Corcoran, Peter; Ionita, Mircea C.; Bacivarov, Ioana (IEEE, 2007)
    This paper realizes an investigation of the active appearance model (AAM) techniques, with particular emphasis on problems related to the implementation of AAM in realtime face tracking applications for embedded systems. ...
  • A Review of Face Recognition Techniques for In-Camera Applications 

    Iancu, Claudia; Costache, Gabriel; Corcoran, Peter M. (IEEE, 2007-08-20)
    This paper presents an overview of a number of classical face recognition techniques, including an assessment of their suitability for applications in real-time embedded systems such as digital cameras, and a generalized ...
  • Separating Directional Lighting Variability in Statistical Face Modelling Based on Texture Space Decomposition 

    Ionita, Mircea C.; Bacivarov, Ioana; Corcoran, Peter (IEEE, 2007-07-04)
    In this paper we propose a simple method for decomposing the linear texture space of a facial appearance model into two linear subspaces, one for inter-individual variability and another for variations caused by directional ...
  • A statistical modeling based system for blink detection in digital cameras 

    Corcoran, Peter; Bacivarov, Ioana; Jonita, Mircea C (IEEE, 2008)
    In this paper we describe a system which uses statistical eye modeling to track the eyes and detect eyes blinking. The main challenge was to design an eye model robust to small variations of head pose and to extract the ...
