The outer ear has been established as a stable and unique biometric characteristic, especially in the field of forensic image analysis. In the last decade, increasing efforts have been made for building automated authentication systems utilizing the outer ear. One essential processing step in these systems is the detection of the ear region. Automated ear(More)
Although a number of different ear recognition techniques have been proposed, not much work has been done in the field of ear detection. In this work we present a new ear detection approach for 3D profile images based on surface curvature and semantic analysis of edge-patterns. The algorithm applies edge-based detection techniques, which are known from 2D(More)
