Abstract

The development of advanced techniques for fast 3D reconstruction and recognition of human faces in unconstrained scenarios can significantly help the fight against crime and terrorism. We describe a 3D solution de- veloped within Sheffield Hallam University that satisfies a number of im- portant requirements such as operating close to real-time, high accuracy in recognition rates, and robust to local illumination. Experimental results in 3D face recognition are reported and two scenarios are provided that can be used to exploit the outcomes of this research for forensic analysis and for flagging potential threats in counter-terrorism.
