We examine the utility of using near-infrared hyperspectral images for the recognition of human subjects over a database of 137 subjects. Hyperspectral images were collected using a CCD camera equipped with a liquid crystal tunable filter and calibrated to spectral reflectance. The face recognition algorithm exploits spectral measurements for individual facial tissue types and combinations of facial tissue types. We demonstrate experimentally that hyperspectral images provide the opportunity to recognize faces independent of facial expression and face orientation.
