Constrained active appearance models

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Active Appearance Models (AAMs) have been shown to be useful for interpreting images of deformable objects. Here we place the AAM matching algorithm in a statistical framework, allowing extra constraints to be applied. This enables the models to be combined with other methods of object location. We demonstrate how user interaction can be used to guide the search and give results of experiments showing the effect of constraints on the performance of model matching.
