# menpodetect.pico¶

This module contains a wrapper of the detector provided by the Pico [1] project. In particular, it provides access to a frontal face detector that implements the work from [2]. At the moment no other Pico models can be loaded due to a technical limitation in how the models are provided.

Pico is of particularly useful for images where the face has undergone in-plane rotation as Pico is capable of performing in-plane detections.
