This paper presents a Bayesian framework for 3D facial reconstruction. The framework iteratively deforms a generic face mesh to fit a set of range points representing a face. The generic mesh is generated from the extensive FRGC database of face images. The deformation process is conducted within a Bayesian framework and is driven by a Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) sampler which uses information from the likelihood and prior distributions of the generic face mesh. The paper presents results on the construction of a generic face model, the deformation framework and fitting results to both synthetic and real data. The results verify the effectiveness of the proposed technique, accurately deforming a generic face mesh to captured 3D data points of human faces.

Citation counts are 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.
