The Reflectance Spectrum of Human Skin

  title={The Reflectance Spectrum of Human Skin},
  author={Elli Angelopoulou},
The automated detection of human skin has become an important task for machine vision systems. Prior vision and graphics research on this topic has primarily focused on images acquired with conventional color cameras. Formal spectrographic analyses have largely been undertaken in the medical domain and focus on the detection of pathology. We have constructed a facility capable of producing accurate, dense and repeatable reflectance measurements. The light reflected from the skin is measured… CONTINUE READING
