Human Lips Recognition

  • Michał Choraś
Part of the Advances in Soft Computing book series (AINSC, volume 45)


In many cases human identification biometrics systems are motivated by real-life criminal and forensic applications. Some methods, such as fingerprinting and face recognition, proved to be very efficient in computer vision based human recognition systems. In this paper we focus on developing computer recognition system that would be used to identify humans on the basis of their lips. We consider lips’ shape and color features in order to determine human identity.
