Model-Less 3D Face Pose Estimation

Fawzi Khattar, Fadi Dornaika and Ammar Assoum


Automatic head pose estimation consists of using a computer to predict the pose of a person based on a given facial image. Fast and reliable algorithms for estimating the head pose are essential for many applications and higher-level face analysis tasks. Many of machine learning-based techniques used for face detection and recognition can also be used for pose estimation. In this chapter, we present a new dimensionality reduction algorithm based on a sparse representation that takes into account pose similarities. Experimental results conducted on three benchmarks face databases are presented.
