Abstract

In the last few years, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) have been increasingly employed in different application domains. Among them, the retail market presents the opportunity to allow people to check the appearance of accessories, makeup, hairstyle, hair color, and clothes on themselves, exploiting virtual try-on applications. In this paper, we propose an eyewear virtual try-on experience based on a framework that leverages advanced deep learning-based computer vision techniques. The virtual try-on is performed on a 3D face reconstructed from a single input image. In designing our system, we started by studying the underlying architecture, components, and their interactions. Then, we assessed and compared existing face reconstruction approaches. To this end, we performed an extensive analysis and experiments for evaluating their design, complexity, geometry reconstruction errors, and reconstructed texture quality. The experiments allowed us to select the most suitable approach for our proposed try-on framework. Our system considers actual glasses and face sizes to provide a realistic fit estimation using a markerless approach. The user interacts with the system by using a web application optimized for desktop and mobile devices. Finally, we performed a usability study that showed an above-average score of our eyewear virtual try-on application.
