A new 3D face database that includes a rich set of expressions, systematic
variation of poses and different types of occlusions is presented
in this paper. This database is designed to enable research on face
recognition under adverse conditions, and facial expression analysis.
Particularly, the expressions consist of a judiciously selected subset
of Action Units as well as the six basic emotions. A preliminary
study has also been done to register faces and estimate the facial
surface deformations due to identity and expression variations. This
new database is a very valuable resource for development and evaluation
of algorithms.
