Recently, many companies have attempted to adopt biomeric technology in their mobile phones. In this paper, we propose a new NIR (NearInfra-Red) lighting face recognition method for mobile phones by using megapixel camera image. This paper presents four advantages and contributions over previous research. First, we propose a new eye detection method for face localization for mobile phones based on corneal specular reflections. To detect these SRs (Specular Reflections) (even for users with glasses), we propose successive On/Off activation of the dual NIR illuminators of mobile phone. Second, because the face image is captured by the NIR illuminator, the nose area can be highly saturated, which can degrade face recognition accuracy. To overcome this problem, we use a simple logarithmic image enhancement method, which is suitable for mobile phones with low processing power. Third, considering the low processing speed of mobile phones, we adopt integer-based PCA (Principal Component Analysis) method for face recognition excluding floating-point operation. Fouth, by comparing the recognition performance using the integer-based PCA to those using LDA (Linear Discriminant Analysis) and ICA (Independent Component Analysis) methods, we could know that the integer-based PCA showed better performance apt for mobile phone with NIR image.
