Recognizing Lower Face Action Units for Facial Expression Analysis
Most automatic expression analysis systems attempt to recognize a small set of prototypic expressions (e.g. happiness and anger). Such prototypic expressions, however, occur infrequently. Human emotions and intentions are communicated more often by changes in one or two discrete facial features. In this paper, we develop an automatic system to analyze subtle changes in facial expressions based on both permanent (e.g. mouth, eye, and brow) and transient (e.g. furrows and wrinkles) facial features in a nearly frontal image sequence. Multi-state facial component models are proposed for tracking and modeling different facial features. Based on these multi-state models, and without artificial enhancement, we detect and track the facial features, including mouth, eyes, brow, cheeks, and their related wrinkles and facial furrows. Moreover we recover detailed parametric descriptions of the facial features. With these features as the inputs, 11 individual action units or action unit combinati...
