Abstract This paper describes a fusion of visual and
thermal infrared (IR) images for robust face
recognition. Two types of fusion methods are
discussed: data fusion and decision fusion. Data fusion
produces an illumination-invariant face image by
adaptively integrating registered visual and thermal
face images. Decision fusion combines matching scores
of individual face recognition modules. In the data
fusion process, eyeglasses, which block thermal energy,
are detected from thermal images and replaced with an
eye template. Three fusion-based face recognition
techniques are implemented and tested: Data fusion of
visual and thermal images (Df), Decision fusion with
