Combined 2D/3D Face Recognition Using Log-Gabor Templates
The addition of Three Dimensional (3D) data has the potential to greatly improve the accuracy of Face Recognition Technologies by providing complementary information. In this paper a new method combining intensity and range images and providing insensitivity to expression variation based on Log-Gabor Templates is presented. By breaking a single image into 75 semi-independent observations the reliance of the algorithm upon any particular part of the face is relaxed allowing robustness in the presence of occulusions, distortions and facial expressions. Also presented is a new distance measure based on the Mahalanobis Cosine metric which has desirable discriminatory characteristics in both the 2D and 3D domains. Using the 3D database collected by University of Notre Dame for the Face Recognition Grand Challenge (FRGC), benchmarking results are presented demonstrating the performance of the proposed methods.
