Detecting open mouth RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I've been trying to detect when the user has his mouth open. I've played with different threshold for AnimationUnit[1] and by measuring the distance between points 66 and 52... but no technique seems to work when the user pitches her head.

    Any suggestions on how to improve performance? I would hate to resort onto some machine learning technique (and I doubt it would work better, given the shakey nature of the data).

  • hi krand!!

    I also am doing a project similar to yours. I've the same problem yours. I want to turn on a light when the user yawned. If you can solve it can tell me how you did it? Thank you!

  • Hola alejo,

    I was actually thinking about waiting for someone to cook a better approach.. but if you feel that you have the energy for it we can team up and train a little neural network, it should not be hard.

    Let me know if you feel like doing it, and I'll write to you over FB or something.
