The 2D face recognition systems encounter difficulties in recognizing faces with illumination variations. The depth map of the 3D face data has the potential to handle the variation in illumination of face images. The view variations are handled by using the moment invariants. Moment Invariants are used as rotation invariant features of the face image. For feature matching an efficient fuzzy-neural technique is proposed. The PCA components of normalized depth map and Moment invariants on mesh images are used successfully to implement a fuzzy neural network based fully automatic 3D face recognition system. The system is evaluated on the 3D face databases, the CASIA database. The proposed system provides recognition accuracy that is resulted in to an efficient 3D face recognition system.
