Abstract: The aims of this paper are to introduce a 3-D shape matching scheme for automatic face recognition and to demonstrate its invariance to pose and facial expressions. The core of this scheme lies on the combination of non-rigid deformation registration and statistical shape modelling. While the former matches 3-D faces regardless of facial expression variations, the latter provides a low-dimensional feature vector that describes the deformation after the shape matching process, thereby enabling robust identification of 3-D faces. In order to assist establishment of accurate dense point correspondences, an isometric embedding shape representation is introduced, which is able to transform 3-D faces to a canonical form that retains the intrinsic geometric structure and achieve shape alignment of 3-D faces independent from individual’s facial expression. The feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed method was investigated using standard publicly available Gavab and BU-3DFE dat abases, which contain faces expressions and pose variations. The performance of the system was compared with the existing benchmark approaches and it demonstrates that the proposed scheme provides a competitive solution for the face recognition task with real-world practicality.
