Nowadays near-infrared face recognition technology with light intensity and face recognition at a distance without the cooperation of users has gained wide attention toward these surveillance systems. Such type of environmental illumination i.e. near-infrared and face recognition at a distance in both daytime and night time can degrade the performance of surveillance systems. In the last decade, the whole biometric communities have worked on challenging tasks to develop a more accurate protection method against Near-Infrared or Long Distance database at distances of 1 meters, 60 meters, 100 meters, and 150 meters, with both daytime and nighttime images. This paper presents an improved technique of fdlibmex algorithm. The paper presents a detailed study and results of environmental illumination for face recognition. This paper also provides future directions for further research.
