We present a technique for recognizing facial expressions from image sequences. The technique uses muscle-based feature models for tracking facial features. Since the feature models are constructed with a small number of parameters and are deformable in the limited range and directions, each search space for a feature can be limited. The technique estimates muscular contractile degrees for classifying six principal facial expressions. The contractile vectors are obtained from the deformations of facial muscle models. Similarities are defined between those vectors and representative vectors of principal expressions and are used for determining facial expressions
