Thermal Imaging helps face identification system

Thermal Imaging helps face identification system

How thermal imaging can help in personal identification?

Face identification systems work with photos of good quality, but what if the face is covered by makeup?

Makeup distorts the image of the face and reduces the accuracy of indication. Thermal Imaging can solve this problem. A team of researchers from Maryland’s U.S. Army Research Laboratory have developed a new technique exploiting thermal-imaging that potentially could help improve facial-recognition performance.

In their analysis, the researchers found that surface materials have relatively little effect on polarimetric-thermal imagery, demonstrating the effectiveness of polarimetric-thermal imaging for recognizing faces with make-up.

The researchers believe a polarimetric-thermal-based system could significantly enhance facial-recognition capability for surveillance or security applications, with other advantages in nighttime conditions and in the presence of face paints and cosmetics.
