In this paper the authors presents an efficient FPGA based architecture for skin region detection algorithm from a facial image. A lot of research work has been carried out on skin region detection for image processing applications. But there is a very limited work to design a hardware module for the same purpose which is very useful for a real time system where speed is a key factor. In this paper, an attempt has been made towards the designing of an efficient FPGA based skin region detection algorithm which is better than the existing architectures in respect of both space and time complexity.
