The recognition of faces in unconstrained environments is a challenging problem. The aim of this work is to carry out a comparative study of face recognition methods working in the thermal spectrum (8–12 mm) that are suitable for working properly in these environments. The analyzed methods were selected by considering their performance in former comparative studies, in addition to being realtime, to requiring just one image per person, and to being fully online (no requirements of offline… CONTINUE READING
