3D Face Recognition For Security Systems

Case Study: Face Recognition in 3D

Using 3D facial data, we can now identify faces accurately enough to even differentiate between identical twins. When scaled for cost-effetiveness this will be a breakthrough feature in security systems.


To develop an efficient 3D face recognition system

The project involved development an efficient system for recognition of human faces in 3D. We developed a system in which we can efficiently compress captured scan data of human faces. We then developed a number metrics based on the geometry of human face (e.g. nose tip, symmetry profile and eye profile).


We have developed a prototype system which demonstrates that 3D facial data can overcome many inherent problems in image-based (2D) face recognition. This can be accurate up to the level of differentiating between identical
