Abstract
Face recognition based on thermal images belongs to less known biometric methods. The method works with images of human face captured in near infrared light spectrum. Infrared face recognition can be either use in stand-alone applications, or as a part of multimodal biometric system in combination with other methods (e.g. face recognition based on 2D or 3D images in visible light spectrum). This article presents different methods of normalization and matching algorithms and shows how they affect the performance of the biometric system. Results of all described methods are summarized to see, which combination of normalization and matching algorithms have the best performance.
