A reliable skin detection method that is adaptable to different human skin colors and illumination is very essential for human skin detection. Today’s many skin detection methods are available in literature but they are not able to cope with variety of skin colors. Several image processing and computer vision approaches have been developed for human skin detection. In this work we propose a mathematical morphology based YCbCr method which given better performance as compare to other HSV, YCbCr color spaces. This method is simple and efficient. The experimental result shows that the proposed method can achieve satisfactory performance in real time applications.
