3D Face Recognition Using Affine Integral Invariants
Paper in proceedings, 2006
A new 3D face representation and recognition approach is presented in this paper. Two sets of facial curves are extracted from a face range image, and a novel facial feature representation, the affine integral invariant, is introduced to mitigate the effect of pose on the facial curves. A human face is shown to be representable by a small
subset of those affine integral invariant curves. A recognition procedure based on the Discriminant Analysis and Jensen-Shannon Divergence analysis is proposed. Substantiating examples are provided with an achieved classification accuracy of 92.57%.
