MoCap-based facial expression synthesis techniques have been applied to provide CG character with expressive and accurate facial expressions [Deng et al. 2006: Lau et al. 2007]. The representative performance of these techniques depends on the variety of captured facial expressions. It is also difficult to guess what expressions are needed to synthesize… (More)
People can estimate an approximate age of others by looking at their faces. This is because faces have certain elements by which people can judge a person's age. If computers can extract and manipulate such information, wide variety of applications for entertainment and security purpose would be expected.
The need to rapidly create 3D human head models is still an important issue in game and film production. Blanz et al have developed a morphable model which can semi-automatically reconstruct the facial appearance (3D shape and texture) and simulated hairstyles of "new" faces (faces not yet scanned into an existing database) using photographs taken from the… (More)
This paper presents an overview of the new version of our multi-model communication face “Mask-Bot”, a rear-projected animated robotic head, including our display system, face animation, speech communication and sound localization.
In recent years, the rate of fatal motor vehicle accidents caused by distracted driving resulting from factors such as sleeping at the wheel has been increasing. Therefore, an alert system that detects driver drowsiness and prevents accidents as a result by warning drivers before they fall asleep is urgently required. Non-contact measuring systems using… (More)
We propose a new automatic head modeling system to generate individualized head models which can express person-specific facial expressions. The head modeling system consists of two core processes. The head modeling process with the proposed automatic mesh completion generates a whole head model only from facial range scan data. The key shape generation… (More)
