Unconstrained environments with variable ambient illumination and changes of head pose are still challenging for many face recognition systems. To recognize a person independent of pose, we first fit an active appearance model to a given facial image. Shape information is used to transform the face into a pose-normalized representation. We decompose the transformed face into local regions and extract texture features from these not necessarily rectangular regions using a shape-adapted discrete cosine transform. We show that these features contain sufficient discriminative information to recognize persons across changes in pose. Furthermore, our experimental results show a significant improvement in face recognition performance on faces with pose variations when compared with a block-DCT based feature extraction technique in an access control scenario.
