[en] We address the limitation of low resolution depth cameras in the context of face recognition. Considering a face as a surface in 3-D, we reformulate the recently proposed Upsampling for Precise Super–Resolution algorithm as a new approach on three dimensional points. This reformulation allows an efﬁcient implementation, and leads to a largely enhanced 3-D face reconstruction. Moreover, combined with a dedicated face detection and representation pipeline, the proposed method provides an improved face recognition system using low resolution depth cameras.
We show experimentally that this system increases the face recognition rate as compared to directly using the low resolution raw data.
