Description:Multimodal/Multimedia Resources
The Multi Modal Verification for Teleservices and Security applications project (M2VTS), running under the European ACTS programme, has produced a database designed to facilitate access control using multimodal identification of human faces. This technique improves recognition efficiency by combining individual modalities (i.e. face and voice). Its relative novelty means that new test material had to be created, since no existing database could offer all modalities needed. The M2VTS database comprises 37 different faces, with 5 shots of each being taken at one-week intervals, or when drastic face changes occurred in the mean time. During each shot, subjects were asked to count from 0 to 9 in their native language (generally French), and to move their heads from left to right, both with and without glasses. The data were then used to create three sequences, for voice, motion and "glasses off". The first sequence can be used for speech verification, 2-D dynamic face verification and speech/lips movement correlation, while the second and third provide information on 3-D face recognition, and may also be used to compare other recognition techniques.
