Conference Proceeding Article
One critical challenge encountered by existing face recognition techniques lies in the difficulties of handling varying poses. In this paper, we propose a novel pose invariant 3D face recognition scheme to improve regular face recognition from two aspects. Firstly, we propose an effective geometry based alignment approach, which transforms a 3D face mesh model to a well-aligned 2D image. Secondly, we propose to represent the facial images by a Locality Preserving Sparse Coding (LPSC) algorithm, which is more effective than the regular sparse coding algorithm for face representation. We conducted a set of extensive experiments on both 2D and 3D face recognition, in which the encouraging results showed that the proposed scheme is more effective than the regular face recognition solutions
