Does anyone know of a single vision face detection package already developed for ROS? I'm trying people/face_detector currently, but that requires a stereo camera with depth information and my stereo camera's depth maps are a bit inaccurate at the moment. Thanks

I've changed the title to better reflect what you are asking, which is essentially a pkg providing an algorithm to detect faces in a regular, 2D image (as opposed to using depth images).

A face detection feature in opencv_apps package takes in a sensor_msgs/Image, which doesn't have to be stereo afaik.

NOTE: in order to run any launch files from that package when you use its binary (ie. the one you get via apt-get), you have to use the version 1.11.14 or higher (launch files don't get installed for previous versions).
