In this chapter, we focus on the fundamentals and advances in the research and commercial aspects of 3D face recognition systems. We consider security applications that have accelerated the growth of biometrics leading to both commercial and research-based system developments. A review of such systems and the factors influencing the choice of biometrics are considered. Advanced techniques in 3D face recognition are touched up on with emphasis on case studies based on different sensor-based databases. These sensors include the FRVT, Microsoft KINECT and stereo vision-based systems. The development of biometric systems needs to consider standards for interoperability, basis for evaluation through a benchmarking process as well as legal and privacy consideration which are covered in this chapter.
