Most of the benchmark face recognition (FR) approaches are designed to depend upon the usage of holistic or texture-based features of the human face. Here we present a new approach to the problem of middle-wave infrared (MWIR) facial recognition that realizes the full potential of the MWIR band. It consists, first, of a fully automated standardization of MWIR images prior to feature extraction through: skin segmentation, eye detection, inter-ocular and geometric normalization of our entire face… CONTINUE READING
