Abstract

Active Shape Model (ASM) is one of the most powerful statistical tools for face image alignment. In this paper, we propose a novel method, called Bunch-Active Shape Model (Bunch-ASM), based on the standard ASM, to automatically locate facial feature points in Face Recognition. In Bunch-ASM, eyes are localized by a face detector and the matching strategy used in Elastic Bunch Graph Matching (EBGM) is introduced. Experimental results prove that the Bunch-ASM performs much better than the standard ASM and the ASM with iris-refinement.
