Abstract

In this paper a new complete system for 3D face recognition is presented. 3D face recognition presents several advantages against 2D face recognition, as, for example, invariance to illumination conditions. The proposed system makes use of a stereo methodology, that does not require any expensive range sensors. The 3D image of the face is modelled using Multilevel B-Splines coefficients, that are classified using Support Vector Machines. Preliminary experimental evaluation has produced encouraging results, making the proposed system a promising low cost 3D face recognition system.
