A system for face recognition using range images as input data is described. The range data acquisition procedure is based on the coded light approach, merging range images that are recorded by two separate sensors. Two approaches, which are known from face recognition based on grey level images have been extended to dealing with range images. These approaches are based on eigenfaces and hidden Markov models, respectively. Experimental results on a database with various range images from 24 persons show very promising results for both recognition methods
