Analysis and synthesis of facial images in 2D, 3D and video to support psychology and orthodontic research.

Example Research Project:

A 3D Psychological Face Database and Tools
Developing usable tools for psychology research
Application Area: Facial perception research.


ESRC funded project in collaboration with Stirling University. To collect a large annotated set of 3D facial images (Stirling) and to provide the tools to process the images.

The software developed allows model annotation, the non-rigid alignment of 3D models, construction of averages, groupwise alignment, statistical analysis of shape, facial transformation, symmetry and volume analysis and has a plug-in architecture for future expansion.

Looking for Commercial Partners:

To support or develop new projects in facial analysis and synthesis or other areas in computer vision and graphics.  Futher development and extensions of our iPhone apps.
