Modeling of automatic people detection and counting in a real-time video is an important feature in a smart surveillance system for safety and security management, marketing research, etc. Face recognition is one of the methods which is used for people detection. In this paper, a real-time automated model is designed using deep learning algorithm such as convolutional neural network which is computationally efficient. The face detected using the proposed algorithm exploits the challenges such as variations in size and shape of the head region to achieve robust detection of a human, even under partial occlusion, dynamically changing background, and varying illumination condition. Here, we have used WIDER face dataset and FDDB dataset to show the results of the proposed method.
