This assignment is included in the FCT (Fundaçăo para a Cięncia e Tecnologia) financed project “BioRec - Non-Cooperative Multimodal Biometric Recognition” (PTDC/EIA/69106/2006).
The task is denominated “Segmentaçăo de faces humanas em tempo real” and the main goal is the development of an application capable of perform real time segmentation of human faces.
The input images always contains one face, and the output image is the segmented face.

Next we present our block diagram:
