Face Recognition Using 3-D Models: Pose and Illumination

  title={Face Recognition Using 3-D Models: Pose and Illumination},
  author={Sami Romdhani and Jeffrey Ho and Thomas Vetter and David J. Kriegman},
  journal={Proceedings of the IEEE},
Unconstrained illumination and pose variation lead to significant variation in the photographs of faces and constitute a major hurdle preventing the widespread use of face recognition systems. The challenge is to generalize from a limited number of images of an individual to a broad range of conditions. Recently, advances in modeling the effects of illumination and pose have been accomplished using three-dimensional (3-D) shape information coupled with reflectance models. Notable developments… CONTINUE READING
