Evaluation of Gabor-Wavelet-Based Facial Action Unit Recognition in Image Sequences of Increasing Complexity
Previous work suggests that Gabor-wavelet-based methods can achieve high sensitivity and specificity for emotionspecified expressions (e.g., happy, sad) and single action units (AUs) of the Facial Action Coding System (FACS). This paper evaluates a Gabor-wavelet-based method to recognize AUs in image sequences of increasing complexity. A recognition rate of 83% is obtained for three single AUs when image sequences contain homogeneous subjects and are without observable head motion. The accuracy of AU recognition decreases to 32% when the number of AUs increases to nine and the image sequences consist of AU combinations, head motion, and non-homogeneous subjects. For comparison, an average recognition rate of 87.6% is achieved for the geometry-feature-based method. The best recognition is a rate of 92.7% obtained by combining Gabor wavelets and geometry features.
