Digital human technology can be applied to many areas, especially at the interaction of intelligent machines, digital 3D, and human-machine interaction. This paper develops a digital human system that enhances friendly interaction between humans and machines through synchronized and realistic facial expressions, based on tracking data from a human user. The details of this paper can be summarized in three parts. First, customize and build a 3D model for the digital human. Second, create a parameterized 3D model for different facial animations. Third, track the user for synchronizing the facial expressions of the customized digital human. The experimental results and analysis in this paper demonstrate the effectiveness and advantages of the developed system, which can create realistic and natural synthesized facial expressions. The system can be further generalized to other intelligent computing areas, such as smart medical care, autonomous vehicles, and companion robots.
