Abstract

A small change in illumination produces large changes in appearance of face even when viewed in fixed pose. It makes face recognition more difficult to handle. To deal with this problem, we introduce a simple and practical method based on the multiple regression model, we call it ICR (Illumination Compensation based on the Multiple Regression Model). We can get the illumination-normalized image of an input image by ICR. To show the improvement of recognition performance with ICR, we applied ICR as a preprocessing step. We achieved better result with the method in preprocessing point of view when we used a popular technique, PCA, on a public database and our database.
