Complete Facial Expression Recognition and Analysis Software
The Emotient API provides the ability to perform real-time, frame-by-frame analysis of the emotional responses of users, detecting and tracking expressions of primary emotions, including joy, surprise, anger, disgust, sadness, contempt and fear; advanced emotions, including frustration and confusion; overall sentiments, including positive, negative and neutral; blended composites of two or more emotions; and 19 Facial Action Units, which are elementary facial muscle movements based on Dr. Paul Ekman's Facial Action Coding System (FACS).
Emotient’s software uses advanced algorithms to recognize multiple faces in still images and video frames before processing, and is able to correct for less then optimal conditions in the source material.
Emotient software uses device-resident cameras and webcams; no special camera equipment is required. A resolution of at least 48 pixels of the face from ear-to-ear is optimal
