Abstract: Face and eye detection algorithms are deployed in a wide variety of applications. Unfortunately, there has been no quantitative comparison of how these detectors perform under difficult circumstances. We created a dataset of low light and long distance images which possess some of the problems encountered by face and eye detectors solving real world problems. The dataset we created is composed of re imaged images (photohead) and semi-synthetic heads im aged under varying conditions of low light, atmospheric blur, and distances of 3m, 50m, 80m, and 200m. This paper analyzes the detection and localization performance of the participating face and eye algorithms compared with the Viola Jones detector and four leading commercial face detectors. Performance is characterized under the different conditions and parameterized by per-image brightness and contrast. In localization accuracy for eyes, the groups/companies focusing on long-range face detection outperform leading commercial applications.
