|Title of Invention||
A METHOD AND APPARATUS OF IMAGE PROCESSING AND A METHOD OF CHARACTERIZING A SENSOR THEREOF
|Abstract||Embodiments include a method of image processing including decomposing a reflectance spectrum for a test surface into a linear combination of reflectance spectra of a set of test targets. The coefficient vector calculated in this decomposition is used to predict a response of an imaging sensor to the test surface. A plurality of such predicted responses may be used for various applications involving color detection and/or classification, including human skin tone detection.|
|Full Text||This invention relates to image processing.
The presence of skin color is useful as a cue for detacting people in real-world photographic image
skin color detection plays an an important role in application such as people tracking...........................
