ON THE EFFECT OF PERSPECTIVE DISTORTIONS IN FACE RECOGNITION

Zahid Riaz, Michael Beetz

Abstract

Face recognition is one of the widely studied topics in the literature image processing and pattern recognition. Generally for the face images, the distance between camera and face is larger than the face size, hence in practice the effects of perspective distortions on the face edges are often ignored by the researchers. While these effects become more prominent if faces are viewed from different angles. In this paper, we study effects of perspective distortion and obtain improved results for face recognition against varying view-points. The approach follows by fitting a 3D model to the face images and creating a texture map by texture rectification at each triangle level. We compare our results with active appearance models (AAM) on two standard face databases.
