Pose Normalization for Local Appearance-Based Face Recognition

  title={Pose Normalization for Local Appearance-Based Face Recognition},
  author={Hua Gao and Hazim Kemal Ekenel and Rainer Stiefelhagen},
We focused this work on handling variation in facial appearance caused by 3D head pose. A pose normalization approach based on fitting active appearance models (AAM) on a given face image was investigated. Profile faces with different rotation angles in depth were warped into shape-free frontal view faces. Face recognition experiments were carried out on the pose normalized facial images with a local appearancebased approach. The experimental results showed a significant improvement in accuracy… CONTINUE READING
