The surface interpenetration measure (SIM) was recently proposed as a promising measure for 3D face matching, although using two limited, small range image databases. In this paper we present novel, more extensive experiments using the SIM in a well-known 3D face database available on the biometric experimentation environment (BEE) to confirm qualitatively that the SIM is a effective, discriminatory measure. The experiments were performed based on range image registration by using two different methods: iterative closest point (ICP) and simulated annealing (SA). By computing the SIM after the registration of two 3D face images one can identify if those images come from the same subject or not. With our SA-based approach we obtained high verification rate scores, which is indeed one of the main goals of the Face Recognition Grand Challenge 2006.
