Face Modelling GUI Matlab Toolbox

A powerful GUI Matlab toolbox for face detection, tracking and facial events detection. It includes implementations of Active Appearance Models, Viola-Jones face detection and skin color detection methods. The modelled facial events are useful for detection of linguistic phenomena for Sign Language Recognition.

This tookbox is no longer available. Please refer to the Menpo Project for an open source package on deformable modelling.
