Abstract
Face recognition has received much interest in the last decade, as the need forreliable personal identification security has become ever more critical. Atpresent for face recognition to be a viable personal identification method anaccurate low cost solution is required. Many two-dimensional (2D) facerecognition systems have been implemented, which demonstrate the potentialof using face recognition, although at present these systems are oftenunreliable. To produce more reliable face recognition systems, a recent trendhas been to use three-dimensional (3D) data, which as research has shown ismore accurate and robust than traditional 2D techniques. 3D face recognitionsystems, however, are often expensive relative to 2D alternatives, as precisecapture equipment is required. This research project has identifiedphotometric stereo as a low cost 3D capture system, which has been littleresearched in the area of face recognition. An investigation is presented,which evaluates the capabilities of photometric stereo for use in the area of face recognition by means of a number of experiments. These experiments areconducted using a photometric stereo system, designed and implemented forthis research project.
