FACE TRACKING USING CANONICAL CORRELATION ANALYSIS

José Alonso Ybáñez Zepeda, Franck Davoine, Maurice Charbit

Abstract

This paper presents an approach that incorporates canonical correlation analysis for monocular 3D face tracking as a rigid object. It also provides the comparison between the linear and the non linear version (kernel) of the CCA. The 3D pose of the face is estimated from observed raw brightness shape-free 2D image patches. A parameterized geometric face model is adopted to crop out and to normalize the shape of patches of interest from video frames. Starting from a face model fitted to an observed human face, the relation between a set of perturbed pose parameters of the face model and the associated image patches is learned using CCA or KCCA. This knowledge is then used to estimate the correction to be added to the pose of the face from an observed patch in the current frame. Experimental results on tracking faces in long video sequences show the effectiveness of the two proposed methods.
