Abstract

In this paper, we introduce a novel approach for face stereo reconstruction based on stereo vision. The approach is based on real time generation of facial disparity map, requiring neither expensive devices nor generic face model. An algorithm based on incorporating topological information of the face in the disparity estimation process is proposed to enhance the result of the 3D reconstruction. Some experimental results are presented to demonstrate the reconstruction accuracy of the proposed method.
