We present results on the latest advances in thermal infrared face recognition, and its use in combination with visible imagery. Previous research by the authors has shown high performance under very controlled conditions, or questionable performance under a wider range of conditions. This paper shows results on the use of thermal infrared and visible imagery for face recognition in operational scenarios. In particular, we show performance statistics for outdoor face recognition and recognition…

It is shown that the performance difference between visible and thermal recognition in a time-lapse scenario is smaller than previously believed, and in fact is not statistically significant on existing data sets.

FACE RECOGNITION UNDER POSE AND EXPRESIVITY VARIATION USING THERMAL AND VISIBLE IMAGES

The combined advantages of thermal and visible face recognition on a Principal Component Analysis (PCA) induced feature space, with PCA applied on each spectrum, on a relatively new thermal/visible face database – OTCBVS, for large pose and expression variations are investigated.

Experimental results indicate that when there is substantial passage of time (greater than one week) between the gallery and probe images, recognition from typical visible-light images may outperform that from infrared images.

Illumination invariant face recognition using thermal infrared imagery

This work examines the invariance of Long-Wave InfraRed (LWIR) imagery with respect to different illumination conditions from the viewpoint of performance comparisons of two well-known face recognition algorithms applied to LWIR and visible imagery.

Performance Comparison of Visual and Thermal Signatures for Face Recognition

This study compares the performance of recognizing the same individuals using visual and thermal infrared signatures under different operating conditions and finds that thermal face recognition achieved higher performance ranks and confidence rates than visual face recognition under different lighting conditions and expressions.

Visible-light and Infrared Face Recognition

In a time lapse scenario, in a comparison and combination of face recognition using visible and infra-red images, the combination of PCA-based recognition and combination substantially outperforms either one individually or either one individual outperforms a current commercial state-of-the-art algorithm operating on visible images.

Comparison of visible and infra-red imagery for face recognition

The recognition results show that both visible and IR imagery perform similarly across algorithms and that fusion of IR and visible imagery as a viable means of enhancing performance beyond that of either acting alone.
