This algorithm was developed as part of a research engineer position in the AutiSTIC project. The general goal of this project was to develop tools for the adaptive execution of (software based) rehabilitation activities for autistic children. I have developed a real time algorithm that detects, tracks and estimates the orientation of a face (Perreira Da Silva et al., 2007). A simple attention model based on face tracking (Perreira Da Silva et al., 2008) has also been created and integrated in several interactive applications (some being targeted at autistic children) (Rempulski et al., 2009; Perreira Da Silva et al., 2009).
