An enhanced representation of thermal faces for improving local appearance-based face recognition
(Taylor and Francis, 2017)
This paper proposes a new methodology to improve appearance-based thermal face recognition methods by using an enhanced representation of the thermal face information. This new representation is obtained by combining the ...
Face Recognition in Unconstrained Environments: A Comparative Study
The development of face recognition methods for unconstrained environments is a challenging problem. The aim of this work is to carry out a comparative study of existing face recognition methods that are suitable to ...
Learning for Meta-Recognition

A Realistic Simulation Tool for Testing Face Recognition Systems under Real-World Conditions
In this article, a tool for testing face recognition systems under uncontrolled conditions is proposed. The key elements of this tool are a simulator and real face and background images taken under real-world conditions ...
Infrared face recogniton by optimum-path forest
This paper presents a novel, fast and accurate appearance-based method for infrared face recognition. By introducing the Optimum-Path Forest classifier, our objective is to get good recognition rates and effectively reduce ...
3DLBP and HAOG fusion for face recognition utilizing kinect as a 3D scanner
Pose and illumination variability are two major problems with 2D face recognition. Since 3D data is less sensible to illumination changes and can be used to adjust pose variations, it has been adopted to improve performance ...
A realistic virtual environment for evaluating face analysis systems under dynamic conditions
This paper proposes a new tool for the evaluation of face analysis systems under dynamic experimental conditions. The tool primarily consists of a virtual environment where a virtual agent (e.g., a simulated robot) carries ...
CENSUS HISTOGRAMS: A SIMPLE FEATURE EXTRACTION and MATCHING APPROACH FOR FACE RECOGNITION
(World Scientific Publ Co Pte Ltd, 2011-12-01)
Most face recognition approaches require a prior training where a given distribution of faces is assumed to further predict the identity of test faces. Such an approach may experience difficulty in identifying faces belonging ...
Thermal Face Recognition using Local Interest Points and Descriptors for HRI Applications
In this article a robust thermal face recognition methodology based on the use of local interest points and descriptors, is proposed. The methodology consists of the following stages: face segmentation, vascular network ...
Illumination compensation and normalization in eigenspace-based face recognition: A comparative study of different pre-processing approaches
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2008-10-15)
The aim of this work is to investigate illumination compensation and normalization in eigenspace-based face recognition by carrying out an independent comparative study among several pre-processing algorithms. This ...
