Constants

ID_UNSUPPORTED

added in API level 21
public static final int ID_UNSUPPORTED

The ID is -1 when the optional set of fields is unsupported.

Constant Value: -1 (0xffffffff)

SCORE_MAX

Public methods

getBounds

added in API level 21
public Rect getBounds ()

Bounds of the face.

A rectangle relative to the sensor's CameraCharacteristics.SENSOR_INFO_ACTIVE_ARRAY_SIZE, with (0,0) representing the top-left corner of the active array rectangle.

There is no constraints on the the Rectangle value other than it is not-null.

Returns
Rect

getId

added in API level 21
public int getId ()

An unique id per face while the face is visible to the tracker.

If the face leaves the field-of-view and comes back, it will get a new id.

This is an optional field, may not be supported on all devices. If the id is .ID_UNSUPPORTED then the leftEyePosition, rightEyePosition, and mouthPositions are guaranteed to be null. Otherwise, each of leftEyePosition, rightEyePosition, and mouthPosition may be independently null or not-null. When devices report the value of key CaptureResult.STATISTICS_FACE_DETECT_MODE as CameraMetadata.STATISTICS_FACE_DETECT_MODE_SIMPLE in CaptureResult, the face id of each face is expected to be .ID_UNSUPPORTED.

This value will either be .ID_UNSUPPORTED or otherwise greater than 0.

Returns
int

getLeftEyePosition

added in API level 21
public Point getLeftEyePosition ()

The coordinates of the center of the left eye.

The coordinates are in the same space as the ones for getBounds(). This is an optional field, may not be supported on all devices. If not supported, the value will always be set to null. This value will always be null only if getId() returns .ID_UNSUPPORTED.

Returns
Point The left eye position, or null if unknown.

getMouthPosition

added in API level 21
public Point getMouthPosition ()

The coordinates of the center of the mouth.

The coordinates are in the same space as the ones for getBounds(). This is an optional field, may not be supported on all devices. If not supported, the value will always be set to null. This value will always be null only if getId() returns .ID_UNSUPPORTED.

Returns
Point The mouth position, or null if unknown.

getRightEyePosition

added in API level 21
public Point getRightEyePosition ()

The coordinates of the center of the right eye.

The coordinates are in the same space as the ones for getBounds().This is an optional field, may not be supported on all devices. If not supported, the value will always be set to null. This value will always be null only if getId() returns .ID_UNSUPPORTED.

Returns
Point The right eye position, or null if unknown.

getScore

added in API level 21
public int getScore ()

The confidence level for the detection of the face.

The range is .SCORE_MIN to .SCORE_MAX. .SCORE_MAX is the highest confidence.

Depending on the device, even very low-confidence faces may be listed, so applications should filter out faces with low confidence, depending on the use case. For a typical point-and-shoot camera application that wishes to display rectangles around detected faces, filtering out faces with confidence less than half of .SCORE_MAX is recommended.

Returns
int

toString

added in API level 21
public String toString ()

Represent the Face as a string for debugging purposes.

Returns
String a string representation of the object.
