In this paper, we introduce a new system for 3D face recognition based on the fusion of results from a committee of regions that have been independently matched. Experimental results demonstrate that using 28 small regions on the face allow for the highest level of 3D face recognition. Score-based fusion is performed on the individual region match scores and experimental results show that the Borda count and consensus voting methods yield higher performance than the standard sum, product, and min fusion rules. In addition, results are reported that demonstrate the robustness of our algorithm by simulating large holes and artifacts in images. To our knowledge, no other work has been published that uses a large number of 3D face regions for high-performance face matching. Rank one recognition rates of 97.2% and verification rates of 93.2% at a 0.1% false accept rate are reported and compared to other methods published on the face recognition grand challenge v2 data set.
