Abstract
In current image-processing algorithms for face
detection performance is not completely reliable,
especially in situations with variable lighting, and
with low-resolution images. One possible approach
to implement face detection is the use of the "red-
eye" effect: the reflection produced by human eyes
when exposed to co-axial infrared (IR) light. We
investigated the effectiveness of the red-eye technique
for variability in: skin tone, eye color, pose, angle of
IR illumination, scene illumination, and the effect of
shine from glasses. Algorithms were developed to
detect eye locations from a single IR image. Image
