Torso detection in static images is a challenging and important problem. Locating the torso region of a human body is difficult due to its cluttering background and various poses. Previous works on torso detection usually demand a time-consuming training phase for complex shape-matching processes. In this paper, a new methodology for detecting the torso portion of the human body is introduced. In this approach, a face detection algorithm is used to locate the face region as a priori and then the torso region is extracted by effectively combined the input image segments and the boundary detection algorithm along with the detected face.
