ABSTRACT
Multispectral imaging in the visible and near infrared spectra helps reduce color variations in the face due to changes in illumination source types and directions. Thermal infrared imaging provides useful signatures of the face that is insensitive to ambient lighting through the measurement of heat energy radiated from the object. This paper introduces the use of multispectral imaging and thermal infrared imaging as alternative means to conventional broadband monochrome or color imaging sensors in order to enhance the performance of face recognition in uncontrolled illumination conditions.
