An IR image of the human face presents its unique heat-signature and can be used for recognition. The characteristics of IR images maintain advantages over visible light images, and can be used to improve algorithms of human face recognition in several aspects. IR images are obviously invariant under extreme lighting conditions (including complete darkness). The main findings of this research are that IR face images are less effected by changes of pose or facial expression and enable a simple… CONTINUE READING
