Abstract [en]

This thesis report details a project to extend the AdGateway product developed at Dohi Sweden with a framework that allows advertisers to create interactive advertisements. The key feature of this framework is to provide augmented reality capabilities by taking advantage of face recognition and webcams on smart TV systems. The interactive advertisements are created as applications in JavaScripts which get downloaded on the fly when a user clicks on a banner for that type of advertisement. This implementation will both extend the back-end system to support the distribution of this new type of advertisement as well as the front-end for the supported devices in order to set up the environment and run the JavaScript application.

The Sony Google TV is the primary focus for the implementation but an extensive study is also included in the report to gather information about other possible platforms that could be supported. This report also studies in detail how the performance of face recognition can be improved by performing illumination normalization on input images.

The project could not be completed on time due to limitations in both hardware and software regarding face detection. Nevertheless a framework has been implemented, and solutions for the impediments are discussed in the report
