A new approach for 3D face modeling using multi-view-stereo and ICP algorithms

NajlaaAbd ABD Hamza, Ghassan H Abdul-Majeed


This paper addresses the problem of facial reconstruction, in the form of a 3D model, from images taken with different viewpoints. The system consists of two parts: 3D dense reconstruction and 3D-3D registration. A Multi-View-Stereo algorithm is used in the 3D dense reconstruction, whereas the ICP algorithm is applied in the 3D-3D registration. The proposed system has been tested against data sets from different viewpoints. The results of the proposed system reveal its superiority over the existing models in terms of quality of reconstruction.
