Lam Active Appearance Models AAMs are able to align efficiently known faces under duress when face pose and illumination are controlled. We propose Adapted Active Appearance Models to align unknown faces in unknown poses and illuminations. Our proposal is based on the one hand on a specific transformation of the active model texture in an oriented map which changes the AAM normalization process on the other hand on the research made in a set of different precomputed models related to the most adapted AAM for an unknown face. Tests on public and private databases show the interest of our approach. It becomes possible to align unknown faces in real-time situations in which light and pose are not controlled.

Introduction All applications related to face analysis and synthesis ManMachine Interaction compression in video communication augmented reality need to detect and then to align the user s face. This latest process consists in the precise localization of the eyes nose and mouth gravity center. Face detection can now be realized in real time and in a rather efficient manner 1 2 the technical bottleneck lies now in the face alignment when it is .
