Abstract: A face detection algorithm for color images based on skin model and facial feature location is presented.Firstly,a new skin model (H_SI_I skin model) which has the robustness for variety of brightness is built.Secondly,facial region’s horizontal gray-level projection is used to estimate the horizontal position of eyes.Finally,the edge features are checked to give the proper position of eyes.Experiments show that the algorithm is simple,fast and robust.

Key words: face detection, skin model, facial feature location, horizontal gray-level projection, edge detection
