Paper Abstract

We present some development results on a system that performs mosaicking of panoramic faces. Our objective is to study the feasibility of panoramic face construction in real time. To do so, we built a simple acquisition system composed of five standard cameras, which together can take simultaneously five views of a face at different angles. Then, we chose an easily hardware-achievable algorithm, consisting of successive linear transformations, in order to compose a panoramic face from these five views. The method has been tested on a large number of faces. In order to validate our system, we also conducted a preliminary study on panoramic face recognition, based on the principal-component method. Experimental results show the feasibility and viability of our system. This allows us to envisage later a hardware implementation. We also are considering using our system for other applications, such as human expression categorization and fast 3-D face reconstruction.
