Objectives of the Biometric Research in the 3D Face Project

The final objective of the 3D Face project is to increase the performance of the core technology to a level allowing its fully operational implementation in airports and to integrate privacy protection technologies that allow for a more secure usage of the biometrics.

The research will combine 3D Face recognition, multimodal feature analysis with various approaches (surface metrics, texture metrics, fusion of algorithms) and privacy protection technologies.

These objectives will be validated under operating conditions compatible with that of an airport environment.

The 3D Face project will clearly focus on five aspects:

Overall, the 3D Face project will strengthen the leading European position in the face recognition market and stimulate excellence of research.
