For a number of different security and industrial applications, there is the need for reliable person identification methods. Among these methods, face recognition has a number of advantages such as being noninvasive and potentially covert. Other advantages of conventional two-dimensional face recognition, in particular, are its low data capture duration and its low cost. However, the recent introduction of fast and comparatively inexpensive time-of-flight cameras for the recording of 2.5D range data in real time calls for a closer look at three-dimentional face recognition in this context. One major disadvantage, however, is the low quality of the data acquired with this type of camera. In this paper, we investigate the feasibility of face recognition systems based on such range images.
