Due to large distances between surveillance cameras and subjects, the captured images usually have low resolution in addition to uncontrolled poses and illumination conditions that adversely affect the performance of face recognition algorithms. In this paper, we present a low-resolution face recognition technique based on Discriminant Correlation Analysis (DCA). DCA analyzes the correlation of the features in high-resolution and low-resolution images and aims to find projections that maximize…

Pose-robust recognition of low-resolution face images

Pose-robust recognition of low-resolution face images
TLDR
A novel approach for matching surveillance quality facial images to high resolution images in frontal pose which are often available during enrollment is developed and uses Multidimensional Scaling to simultaneously transform the features from the poor quality probe images and the high quality gallery images in such a manner that the distances between them approximate the distances had the probe images been captured in the same conditions as the gallery images.
Multidimensional Scaling for Matching Low-Resolution Face Images
TLDR
The proposed approach for matching low-resolution probe images with higher resolution gallery images, which are often available during enrollment, using Multidimensional Scaling (MDS), improves the matching performance significantly as compared to performing matching in the low- resolution domain or using super-resolution techniques to obtain a higher resolution test image prior to recognition.
