In this paper we present a novel method that combines a HK curvature-based approach for three-dimensional (3D) face detection in different poses (X-axis, Y-axis and Z-axis). Salient face features, such as the eyes and nose, are detected through an analysis of the curvature of the entire facial surface. All the experiments have been performed on the FRAV3D Database. After applying the proposed algorithm to the 3D facial surface we have obtained considerably good results i.e. on 752 3D face images our method detected the eye corners for 543 face images, thus giving a 72.20% of eye corners detection and 743 face images for nose-tip detection thus giving a 98.80% of good nose tip localization.
