A Novel Pose Invariant Face Recognition Approach Using A 2D-3D Searching Strategy
MetadataShow full item record
Many Face Recognition techniques focus on 2D- 2D comparison or 3D-3D comparison, however few techniques explore the idea of cross-dimensional comparison. This paper presents a novel face recognition approach that implements cross-dimensional comparison to solve the issue of pose invariance. Our approach implements a Gabor representation during comparison to allow for variations in texture, illumination, expression and pose. Kernel scaling is used to reduce comparison time during the branching search, which determines the facial pose of input images. The conducted experiments prove the viability of this approach, with our larger kernel experiments returning 91.6% - 100% accuracy on a database comprised of both local data, and data from the USF HumanID 3D database.
