FindYourGlasses APP is an application allowing users to try on the glasses from the collection before buying them. Additionally, the app gives recommendations of glasses models based on the user’s face shape and user personal preferences.
The main difficulty in the implementation of this project was that it was necessary to accurately determine the shape of the head in order to give relevant recommendations on the selection of the shape of the glasses. It was also necessary to implement a clear positioning of the glasses on the face when the user moves their head.
The problem of multiple existing apps is their low performance and a very limited user experience. Qualium Systems created their solution based on cutting-edge technologies allowing users to try on different glasses models in real-time (opposite to the apps providing static images). Qualium Systems’ face tracking module allows glasses to stay exactly where they should be when the user moves their head.
Additionally, Qualium Systems have a smart helper feature that can recommend users certain models based on their face shape. In order to make this possible, they studied the patterns that underlie the proportional division of parts of the head. Knowledge of the classical canons gave Qualium Systems the opportunity to correctly determine the proportions and characteristic features of the structure of the heads of different people.
Qualium Systems have developed a custom algorithm, which creates and predicts the whole face key points and distance between them allowing the system to determine the shape of the face with 95.8% accuracy. It is based on the face geometry rules and proportions used by artists.
This is an important part as standard recognition and face tracking algorithms don’t track the forehead points, and without them, it is impossible to correctly determine the shape of the face and provide matching glasses models.
