Eye detection plays an important role in face recognition because eyes provide distinctive facial features. However, illumination effects such as heavy shadows and drastic lighting change make it difficult to detect eyes well in facial images. In this paper, we propose a novel framework for illumination invariant eye detection under varying lighting conditions. First, we use adaptive candidate detection using the edge histogram descriptor (EHD) on the illumination normalized-facial images… CONTINUE READING
