Annotated face model-based alignment: a robust landmark-free pose estimation approach for 3D model registration. Y Wu, SK Shah, IA Kakadiaris.

Date: November 2017. Source: Machine Vision and Applications (2017). https://doi.org/10.1007/s00138-017-0887-6. Abstract: Registering a 3D facial model onto a 2D image is important for constructing pixel-wise correspondences between different facial images. The registration is based on a 3 ×× 4 dimensional projection matrix, which is obtained from pose estimation. Conventional pose estimation approaches employ facial landmarks […]

A Solution to Face-to-Face Contact in Tele-Presence Systems. X Zhou, P Boulanger.

Date: June 2015 Source: 2015 12th Conference on Computer and Robot Vision (CRV) Proceedings (p 230 – 236), Halifax, Canada. Abstract: In tele-presence systems, direct face-to-face contact, is essential for emotional communication as it carries non-verbal clues. In commercial products, face-to-face contact is approximated by using either a large semi-transparent mirror to project an image […]

3D Facial Gestures in Biometrics: from Feasibility Study to Application. L Benedikt, D Cosker, PL Rosin and D Marshall.

Date: Sept. 2008. Source: Biometrics: Theory, Applications and Systems, 2008. BTAS 2008. 2nd IEEE International Conference; pp 1-6. Abstract: The human face has been so far mainly seen as a physiological biometric and very little work has been done to exploit the idiosyncrasies of facial gestures for person identification. This study proposes a markerless method […]
