A fully automatic 3D face recognition algorithm is presented. Several novelties are introduced to make the recognition robust to facial expressions and efficient. These novelties include: (1) Automatic 3D face detection by detecting the nose; (2) Automatic pose correction and normalization of the 3D face as well as its corresponding 2D face using the Hotelling transform; (3) A spherical face representation and its use as a rejection classifier to quickly reject a large number of candidate faces… CONTINUE READING
