Abstract

A new approach to face verification from 3D data is presented. The method uses 3D registration techniques designed to work with resolution levels typical of the irregular point cloud representations provided by Structured Light scanning. Preprocessing using a-priori information of the human face and the Iterative Closest Point algorithm are employed to establish correspondence between test and target and to compensate for the non-rigid nature of the surfaces. Statistical modelling in the form of Gaussian Mixture Models is used to parameterise the distribution of errors in facial surfaces after registration and is employed to differentiate between intra- and extra-personal comparison of range images. An Equal Error Rate of 2:67% was achieved on the 30 subject manual subset of the the 3d rma database.

4 citations in Web of Science®

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
