Combined Classification of Multiple Views using Facial Corners
The profile view of a face provides a complementary structure that is not seen in the frontal view. The classification system combining both frontal and profile views of faces can improve the classification accuracy. And it would be more foolproof because it is difficult to fool the profile face identification by a mask. This paper proposes a new face recognition approach, which can be applied on both frontal and profile faces, to build a robust combined multiple view face identification system. The recognition employs a novel facial corner coding and matching method, and integrates the outline and interior facial parts in the profile matching. The proposed multiview modified Hausdorff distance fuses multiple views of faces to achieve an improved system performance.
