Active Appearance Models (AAMs) are generative models which can describe deformable objects. However, the texture in basic AAMs is represented using intensity values. Despite its simplicity, this representation does not contain enough information for image matching. In this paper, we firstly propose to utilize Gabor filters to represent the image texture. The benefit of Gabor-based representation is that it can express local structures of an image. As a result, this representation can lead to… CONTINUE READING
