In this paper, a method of identifying individuals using the range image in the 3/4 views is proposed. We have already proposed the method of identifying human faces using the three dimensional facial data. But the method we proposed previously assumed that the three dimensional data for identifying the faces were obtained from only the small region on the facial surface because the three dimensional sensor was set in front of the face. In the proposed method, the sensor is set at an angle to the face so that the three dimensional data can be obtained form the large region on one side of the facial surface. In this paper, we describe the algorithm of identifying human faces using the angled facial data and show some experimental results to verify effectiveness of the proposed method.
