Human Facial Feature Point Detection is Based on Improved ASM Method
In view of the traditional Active Shape Model (ASM) method’s flaw and insufficiency, the paper proposed several improvements methods. The traditional ASM method carries on the characteristic search using of the initial point which provided using the person face examination；in the improvement algorithm, the paper has used the method of pupil orientation on the initialization and adopted improvement methods of edge restraint, auto-adapted length of stride to effectively improved the ASM method performance. The experimental result indicated that, the improvement ASM method has a bigger enhancement in the accuracy and robustness.
