Abstract This paper summarizes the various
components of face recognition research conducted at
the IRIS Lab. First, fusion of visual and thermal
infrared (IR) images for robust face recognition is
discussed. Two techniques are implemented: data
fusion and decision fusion. With the knowledge that
eyeglasses block the emission of thermal energy, an
