Automatic Extraction of Facial Features Robust for Variations Caused by Individual Differences and Shooting Conditions
Koji Sugiyama, Masahide Kaneko (UEC)
Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Accurate detection of facial feature points is crucial to analyze facial features and to synthesize impressive caricatures by computer. A lot of studies on automatic detection of facial feature points have done until now, however, accurate detection methods which can be used in above-mentioned applications have not been developed yet. This paper firstly proposes automatic extraction methods of hair and eye contours that are robust for an influence by individual differences and shooting conditions. Then, an automatic extraction method of open mouth which could not be properly handled by previous methods is examined. Both open and close mouths are properly processed and even for expressive faces it’s possible to detect contours of upper and lower lips. By applying the proposed methods to various face images, it’s possible to synthesize facial caricatures which reflect the features of individual persons clearly.
