This study explored the use of multi-instance enrollment as a means to improve the performance of 3D face recognition.
Experiments were performed using the ND-2006 3D face data set, which contains 13,450 scans of 888 subjects. This is the largest 3D face data set currently available and contains a substantial amount of varied facial expression. Results indicate that the multi-instance enrollment approach outperforms a state-of-the-art component-based recognition approach, in which the face to be recognized is considered as an independent set of regions.
