Estimation of 3D Motion and Structure of Human Faces
The extraction of motion and shape information of three dimensional objects from video sequences emerges in various applications especially within the framework of the MPEG-4 and MPEG-7 standards. Particular attention has been given to this problem within the scope of model-based coding and knowledge-based ZD modeling. In this chapter, a novel algorithm is proposed for the 3D reconstruction of a human face from 2D projections. The obtained results can contribute to several fields with an emphasis on 3D modeling and characterization of human faces.
