Next Generation Face Tracking Technology Using AAM Techniques
This paper realizes an investigation of the active appearance model (AAM) techniques, with particular emphasis on problems related to the implementation of AAM in realtime face tracking applications for embedded systems. ...
Separating Directional Lighting Variability in Statistical Face Modelling Based on Texture Space Decomposition
In this paper we propose a simple method for decomposing the linear texture space of a facial appearance model into two linear subspaces, one for inter-individual variability and another for variations caused by directional ...
A combined approach to feature extraction for mouth characterization and tracking
A statistical Active Appearance Model (AAM) is developed to model and track the lips. A major challenge in modelling the mouth area, considered the most deformable facial feature, is the weak contrast between lips and skin ...
Facial expression modeling using component AAM models - Gaming applications
In this paper we provide preliminary results on a new modeling approach for improved determination of facial expressions from a low-resolution video stream. An initial proof-of-concept using an extension of an Active ...
