- The Bimodal Face and Body Gesture Database (FABO) for Automatic Analysis of Human Nonverbal Affective Behavior was created at the Faculty of Information Technology at the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) by Hatice Gunes and Massimo Piccardi in 2005. Posed visual data was collected from volunteers in a laboratory setting by asking and directing the participants on the required actions and movements. The FABO database contains videos of face and body expressions recorded by the face and body cameras, simultaneously. The details of FABO can found in the following paper: H. Gunes and M. Piccardi, “A Bimodal Face and Body Gesture Database for Automatic Analysis of Human Nonverbal Affective Behavior”, Proc. of ICPR 2006 the 18th IAPR International Conference on Pattern Recognition, 22-24 Aug. 2006, Hong Kong, IEEE Computer Society Press, Vol. 1, pp. 1148-1153, ISBN: 0-7695-2521-0.
