In human-human communication we use verbal, vocal and non-verbal signals to communicate with others. Facial expressions are a form of nonverbal communication, recognizing them helps to improve the human-machine interaction. This paper proposes a system for pose- and illumination-invariant recognition of facial expressions using near-infrared camera images and precise 3D shape registration. Precise 3D shape information of the human face can be computed by means of constrained local models (CLM), which fits a dense model to an unseen image in an iterative manner. We used a NN to classify the acquired 3D shape into different emotion categories. Results surpassed human performance and show pose-invariant performance. Varying lighting conditions can influence the fitting process and reduce the recognition precision. We built a near-infrared and visible light camera array to test the method with different illuminations. Results shows that the near-infrared camera configuration is suitable for robust and reliable facial expression recognition with changing lighting conditions.



Main objective The design of face recognition algorithms that are effective over a wide range of viewpoints, complex outdoor lighting, occlusions, facial expressions, and aging of subjects, is still a major area of research. Before one claims that the facial image processing / analysis system is reliable, rigorous testing and verification on real-world datasets must be performed, including databases for face analysis and tracking in digital video.


With advances in computing and telecommunications technologies, digital images and video are playing key roles in the present information era. Human face is an important biometric object in image and video databases of surveillance systems. . Face recognition has a critical role in biometric systems and is attractive for numerous applications including visual surveillance and security. Because of the general public acceptance of face images on various documents, face recognition has a great potential to become the next generation biometric technology of choice. Face images are also the only biometric information available in some legacy databases and international terrorist watch-lists and can be acquired even without subjects’ cooperation.

Though there has been a great deal of progress in face detection and recognition in the last few years, many problems remain unsolved. Research on face detection must confront with many challenging problems, especially when dealing with outdoor illumination, pose variation with large rotation angles, low image quality, low resolution, occlusion, and background changes in complex real-life scenes.
