The content of this work is the proposal of the technical HS-ab for the detection and tracking of the regions of skin in real time. First, two proposed techniques are analyzed for the modeling of skin color in images using a combination of color spaces HSV with YCbCr and HSV with CIELab. In the process of definition of the intervals of pixels is taken into account the following: non-skin color uses the components H and S, whereas skin color uses the components Cb, Cr, a, and b. The results showed that the HS-ab technique is better than the HS-CbCr technique because of the precision in detecting skin color according to the percentages C (34.8%) and CDR (67%). After, the morphologic operations are applied to debug the images of the previous segmentation and detect regions of skin using methods such as blob extraction and contour detection. Subsequently, the tracking of skin color consists of calculating the moments and positions of each frame to know the trajectory of the regions of skin. The purpose of the work is to design an easy-to-use computer vision system that will facilitate the early rehabilitation of patients before they are clinically ready to be fitted with a prosthesis.
